The investigation into the murder of a DISD high school student leads police to possible sport recruiting infractions by top administrators and coaches. Now more than a dozens adults, accused of taking part in the recruiting scandal, are all out of a job.
For weeks now there has been talk of creating a Home Rule Charter in the DISD. Now the district is looking for individuals to serve on the 15-person Dallas ISD Home Rule Charter Commission.
The plan that would allow the Dallas Independent School District to break away from state regulations, also known as home rule, has cleared its latest hurdle.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings says that Toyota considered relocating to Dallas, but decided against the city because the school district simply wasn’t good enough.
There is a big effort underway in the city of Dallas to get more young children into the classroom. It’s a push to up the enrollment in pre-k classes.
