DISD superintendent Michael Hinojosa to speak at Dallas Chamber luncheon Sept. 18
Odds seem good that chicken breast will be one of the dining options offered.
DALLAS The Greater Dallas Chamber, together with presenting sponsor Capital One, hosts the annual State of the District Luncheon to update the business community on the district's affairs. Dr. Michael Hinojosa, superintendent of the Dallas Independent School District, will highlight topics that include the school's national ranking, business involvement and its relation to the success of Dallas ISD, and the Dallas Achieves! initiative. The superintendent will also provide an overview of the current challenges and goals of the district.
The Dallas Independent School District is the 12th largest in the nation with over 160,000 students enrolled in 217 school facilities. Dr. Hinojosa's top priorities for the District include: improve student achievement, ensure safety for all students, nurture, encourage and train teachers, act fiscally responsible, and improve facilities to create the best learning environment.
Hinojosa was named general superintendent of the Dallas Independent School District in April of 2005, by a unanimous vote of the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees. He began his career in Dallas ISD as a student followed by service as an educator.
The luncheon event will be held on September 18 at the Adam's Mark Hotel from 12-1:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 for Chamber members and $65 for the general public. To register, visit the Web site.
