Since Superintendent Mike Miles took the reigns in July, there have been a number of changes within Dallas Independent School District, the 14th largest in the nation. Perhaps Miles’ most sweeping change was his restructuring at the top, assigning 20 executive directors to manage and support 220 principals.
Results from a recent survey of these principals suggest that this early move is beginning to impact instructional quality at the campus and classroom level. Among the findings: 70% of principals surveyed believe they have become better instructional leaders. You can learn more about the survey and other findings in this article published by the Dallas Morning News earlier this month.
