DISD to fire 440 teachers, 2 principals

Posted: Updated:

Dallas ISD school board members voted to terminate the contract of 440 teachers and two principals.

The principals are from Madison and Roosevelt High Schools.

Their removal has angered some Dallas residents, since they are being let go by an evaluation system put in place by DISD Superintendent Mike Miles.

The system grades principals on effectiveness, performance and achievement.

It has even produced protests from political leaders, particularly Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price.

He claims some long-established, well-liked principals have been unfairly targeted by Miles.

At one time about a dozen or more principals were on a list to be fired, but many accepted demotions.

For those fired, there is an appeal process they can follow.
