DISD Backs Off Bilingual Principal Policy

POSTED: 9:24 am CDT October 27, 2006

DALLAS -- The Dallas Independent School District is backing off its policy
requiring elementary school principals to be bilingual by 2008. The board
revised the policy to say that the schools would only have to have an
official who speaks the primary language of the majority of the students.
That official does not have to be the principal. That policy is currently
in place at DISD middle schools and high schools. Hispanic students make
up 65 percent of the DISD student population.
