Dallas ISD to Discuss Using Job Search Firms

The Dallas Independent School District School Board will discuss a request Thursday night to spend $300,000 over three years on search firms to hire cabinet-level positions in the district.

A request submitted to the trustees stated the money would be used to hire the search firms to help fill "hard to staff" positions such as chief academic officer, chief administrative officer and others on as "as needed" basis.

The proposal doesn't state the specific jobs DISD wants to fill nor the total number of positions to hire.

The district proposed a similar deal recently that cost $170,000 and hired only seven positions, five of which were principals.

The DISD School Board meets at 6 p.m. Thursday at DISD Headquarters.
