Dallas Independent School District
Welcome To Our Department!
“Individual success in the 21st century economy is increasingly dependent on STEM literacy; simply to function as an informed consumer and citizen in a world of increasingly sophisticated technology requires the ability to use digital devices and STEM skills such as evidence-based reasoning.” Keeping scientific literacy at the forefront of everything we do in our department, allows us to ensure that our stakeholders remain at the center of support from our department. The lessons and professional development we create, integrate topics that touch today’s urban student, from global issues such as climate change, sustainability of resources, and global citizenship all the way down to more pressing local issues such as air pollution and access to healthy food. We approach wellness through the lens of creating systemic change by collaborating with our parents and community stakeholders. By doing so, we keep relevant research and evidence-based practices at the center of our conversations and actionable items. This allows our department to address inequities in certain areas of wellness, as well as improve current district systems that create a healthier lifestyle and more relevant learning experiences for our students.
