Based on stakeholder input, PROACT and the Board of Education will develop a Superintendent profile which will be presented to the Board of Education.

“We want the Dallas community’s opinions to be heard and considered,” said Dallas ISD Board President Dr. Lew Blackburn. “This search is a vital decision which will impact the future of our children, schools and the community for many years, and with honest feedback from the Dallas community, we will be better suited to select a superintendent who meets the needs of our city and region.”
“PROACT Search is enthusiastic about this important work in Dallas and the opportunity that exists for the city to find itself a best fit leader for the city’s schools,” says PROACT Search CEO Gary Solomon. “In engaging not just the Dallas educational community, but all stakeholders and community members, PROACT Search will be able to accurately recruit the best candidates from across the country.”
