Judge Denies Teacher's Group Injunction Against DISD

A Dallas County judge has denied a request from Alliance-AFT for a temporary injunction against the Dallas Independent School District.

The teachers group claimed that the District Advisory Committee went against state law to appoint four teachers to the home rule commission.

One of the reasons noted in Judge Carl Ginsberg’s denial is that the Alliance-AFT cannot yet prove that there is harm presented to its members.

Ginsberg said: “Until the Commission completes its charge and actually drafts a proposed charter, it is impossible to know whether the proposed charter will, in fact, be inimical to the interests of Plaintiff’s members.”

DISD School Board will meet Thursday night to discuss with its attorney the outcome of the judge’s ruling.

Also on the agenda for tonight, DISD trustees plan to vote on how they will appoint the remaining 11 members on the commission.

Last week, they discussed two options:

  • Each board member selects one person for commission; together they vote on last 2 positions.
  • Create a sub-committee to make the selections
