DISD Supporters' New Rallying Cry

I see the Dallas Independent School District board has pulled from its Thursday meeting to-do list the following consent agenda item: "Consider and Take Possible Action to Approve the 2011-12 Campus Staffing Formulas, Non-Position Campus Formulas, and Non-Campus Staffing Guidelines." Which, for those who need a refresher, the Dallas Friends of Public Education has posted right here. I also see the graphic above is making the rounds -- both on the DFPE website and the Save DISD School Facebook page, which we discussed over the weekend. And, yes, the purple represents teachers.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
