Racial Equity Office makes strides to level opportunity for all students

Not quite a year ago, Dallas ISD’s Racial Equity Office was established to identify and remove obstacles to creating a level playing field for all students to succeed.

The new department is already making a positive impact with an intentional, focused and measurable approach. The first step has been identifying inequities in the district, not only student achievement, but student access to things such as technology, specialized programming and well-maintained facilities.

When inequities are found, the office collaborates with relevant departments to come up with solutions. In fact, when the office began its work, staff made an effort to meet with representatives of every Dallas ISD department.

“We reviewed the racial equity policies of urban school districts across the country,” said Leslie Williams, Deputy Chief Racial Equity. “We noticed that most of the policies were generic statements. We didn’t want that – we wanted to be very specific.”

Being specific isn’t enough. The progress of those strategic outcomes has to be monitored with goal progress measures – ways to gauge an effort’s effectiveness along the way. Williams said data-driven, deep-dive analysis of data helps drive their efforts and lets them know quickly when something is working.

“We are the only district in the country, that we’ve noticed, that does that,” Williams said. “The plan is for the racial equity in Dallas ISD to set the standard for the country. We plan to have school districts from all over this country to see how are you doing that.”

The office has seven major areas of focus, listed here.

Williams also points to strong support from the Board of Trustees, which unanimously passed a Racial Equity resolution in December 2017 and unanimously approved the policy in June 2018.

Existing initiatives won’t necessarily be going away, Williams said, but rather they are being taken districtwide. For example, the successful African American Success Initiative (AASI) was formerly only implemented at selected schools.

The latest African American Read-In on Feb. 9, which had been a major program of the AASI, was more inclusive than it ever had been.

“If you look at the pictures, you saw Muslim students, Hispanic students, African American students, Asian students – it was a very diverse group of kids there,” Williams said. “That’s our goal. I want the different ethnic groups to learn about each other’s cultures and history. If you know more about a person’s culture and their history, you’re going to get along better with that person.”

Although the department was established in April 2018, it wasn’t until June that Williams transitioned to head the effort. He was leading the Intensive Support Network and had to wait until STAAR results were out to determine which district schools were classified as Improvement Required. The results are one of the district’s recent success stories, as Dallas ISD had 43 Improvement Required campuses in 2013-2014, and just four in 2017-2018.

Williams credits Superintendent Michael Hinojosa for having the vision to create the Racial Equity Office in the first place. Without intentionally identifying inequities and working to solve them, change won’t happen.

Besides continually monitoring its work, the office is also working to develop a branding and marketing plan to share their efforts with others.

Food & Child Nutrition Services nets perfect score on state review

Dallas ISD’s Food & Child Nutrition Services (FCNS) served up a perfect score on its Administrative Review in January – an unprecedented accomplishment for the department, which serves about 40 million meals to students each year.

During the week of Jan. 14, Texas Department of Agriculture auditors conducted the comprehensive review, which evaluated finances, adherence to policies and procedures as well as effectiveness in meeting the needs of students.

“I want to congratulate every member of Team FCNS!” said Michael Rosenberger, Executive Director of FCNS. “To say that I’m proud of everyone on our team is an understatement. We had a challenge before us, and our team rose to the challenge. As one person put it, we won our very own Super Bowl.”

A celebration for staff is being planned for Friday, Feb. 15, which is a student holiday.

Auditors noted in their report that the FCNS is on the forefront of innovation, including the way it implements culinary training for staff across the district. “The most impressive outcome of Dallas ISD’s efforts can be seen with the incredible kitchen staff teams at the schools that were observed during the review,” the report says. “Staff demonstrated outstanding teamwork and coordination at each of the meal services throughout the reviewed schools.”

The FCNS mission is to provide nutrition to students that fuels successful learning. FCNS provides nourishing meals, nutrition education and activities that support a healthy lifestyle. All Dallas ISD schools serve Breakfast in the Classroom, with some also offering after-school meals, and a fresh, locally grown produce item is featured as the Harvest of the Month.

Doncic finished the Rising Stars game one assist shy of a double-double

CHARLOTTE – Luka Doncic had to laugh when told that he was just one assist shy of a double-double in Friday night’s Rising Stars game, which his Word Team lost to the U.S. Team, 161-144, at the Spectrum Center.

“I had nine (assists)?,” Doncic asked, while flashing a big grin. “I didn’t know that.”

Ironically, during the Mavs’ final game before the All-Star break this past Wednesday against Miami, Doncic also contributed nine assists after leaving that game one assist shy of collecting his fourth triple-double of the season. And in the first half of Friday’s contest, Doncic went searching for assists. He wound up with four of his nine assists by halftime in a game that featured a lot of dunks, numerous flashy passes and very little – almost none – defense.

“I wasn’t trying to shoot,” Doncic said. “I was trying to pass and just have fun.”

“For me it was not about winning. I think these kinds of things are about the fans. I was just having fun out there.”

Doncic finished the game with 13 points, five rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two turnovers in 24 minutes. He also was 5-of-12 from the floor, including 3-of-9 from behind the 3-point line.

Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki was decked out in a suit while sitting on the World Team bench. Nowitzki was an honorary coach for the World Team, and gave a pre-game speech that involved reminding the players not to over-dribble.

Was that a sly but playful shot at Doncic?

“Maybe that’s why we lost,” Doncic said. “But he was just joking.”

On another matter, when Doncic found out that New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis is questionable for Sunday’s All-Star game after injuring his shoulder during Thursday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Mavs’ rookie couldn’t help but have a natural reaction.

“That’s why I couldn’t sleep,” Doncic said.

After all, Doncic was third in the fan voting for the All-Star game behind LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo. And if Davis can’t play, it may be easier to replace him with Doncic, who is already in Charlotte and who also will be competing in the Skills Challenge on Saturday night.

As far as Friday’s playground-style game went, Doncic was able to perfect one of his patented step-back 3-pointers. He also hoisted a very long 3-pointer – that missed – which was in Stephen Curry’s neighborhood.

On his ability to rack up assists, Doncic mentioned one former member of the Mavericks as a player he’s always admired when it comes to the fine art of passing the basketball.

“There’s a lot of people, but I watch a lot of Steve Nash,” Doncic said. “He’s one of my favorite players.

“(Passing the ball) makes the people happy, so it’s fun.”

Matched up against many of his peers, Doncic more than held his own. Kyle Kuzma of the Los Angeles won the Most Valuable Player award after scoring 35 points on 15-of-27 shots.

Also for the U.S. Team, Jayson Tatum scored 30 points, Trae Young had 25, Donovan Mitchell poured in 20 points, Marvin Bagley III scored 14, Johnson Collins had 12, Kevin Knox tallied 11 and Jaren Jackson Jr. added 10.

For the World Team, Ben Simmons poured in 28 points, Lauri Markkanen contributed 21 points, Deandre Ayton, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Shai Gilgeous-Alezander had 15 points apiece, Josh Okogie scored 13 points, OG Anunoby tallied 12.

Overall, Doncic noted that this was a good experience for him that he’ll never forget.

“I would say just having fun and giving the fans a show,” he said. “I was just having fun out there. Not trying to do too much.”

Calhoun has undergone physical makeover

Willie Calhoun might be the most compelling player in camp. The Rangers, who acquired him from the Dodgers in a Trade Deadline deal in 2017 for Yu Darvish, have always liked Calhoun's bat. But this offseason they gave him a mandate to lose weight and get his body in shape. Calhoun followed orders and showed up to camp weighing 199 pounds. He said he lost 24 pounds in the offseason.


Cabrera confident he can make transition to 3rd

The Rangers hope to take some of the pressure off Asdrubal Cabrera as he transitions to being a full-time third baseman.


Before the NBA Draft, Donnie Nelson had been tracking Luka Doncic for a while

CHARLOTTE – As Donnie Nelson was hanging out in Europe for the last few years, and tracking literally every basketball move Luka Doncic made, he came across an interesting observation.

Doncic was always the youngest player on the court, but he didn’t let his young age prevent him from dominating most games. It was as if Doncic relished the idea of beating the older men at a game he always referred as “just basketball.”

Nelson, the president of basketball operations for the Dallas Mavericks, always viewed Doncic as this gifted warrior who was destined for stardom, destined to bust through the NBA gates and showcase his special talents.

“We’ve been tracking him for a while,” Nelson said. “Really, I feel like I’ve lived in Europe two years before the (2018 NBA) draft.”

Nelson sent an inordinate amount of time in Europe so he could scout, among others, Doncic. Unquestionably the best player in Europe, Doncic was the player the Mavs had set their sites on plucking from last summer’s draft.

“He’s a winner in every sense of the word,” Nelson said. “Just a guy that naturally loves to pass, make plays, just a big moment guy who won on every level.

“There’s a maturity to his game that it seems like at every level when he was playing as a youth and then into his mid- to late teens, he was always playing against bigger guys and getting it done against those guys. So those were some of the things that we saw.”

Still, not even smart basketball minds like Nelson — who are overly experienced when it comes to tapping into the international market — were prepared for what Doncic was about to accomplish on the NBA level. They didn’t think his skill set, his charisma, his talents would translate to the NBA so quickly, or that he would be a consistent dominant figure right away.

“Honestly, I was expecting a much more typical rookie year, which was maybe going through a little bit more ups and downs than we’ve seen,” Nelson said. “It’s great that he’s embraced the opportunity and he’s making the most of it.”

No one obviously knows for sure where Doncic’s trajectory will take him. But it’s increasingly clear that he is no ordinary NBA rookie.

“He looks like he’s been in the league for four or five years already, but I think that goes back to his roots and how he’s been competing at this level,” Charlotte Hornets coach James Borrego said. “But I think his experience speaks for itself.

“He’s had great success already at a very young age, and it’s translated. I think people were a little skeptical — could it translate to the NBA — and obviously it has. He sees the game at an extremely high level and just has a great confidence out there.”

With that confidence, Doncic will be playing for the World Team when they take on the U.S. Team in the Rising Stars game on Friday at 8 p.m. at the Spectrum Center. And Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki will be the honorary coach for the World Team.

Doncic also will be a participant in the Skills Challenge on Saturday.

Mavs owner Mark Cuban has joined the list of those singing Doncic’s praises. Cuban knows he has a special player in Doncic, who is only 19 years old and could be a part of the Mavs’ franchise for over two decades.

“Nothing phases him, the game is slow to him, he doesn’t lose his composure too much, he sees the floor unbelievable,” Cuban said. “He’s calm, he lets the game comes to him, he doesn’t speed up with the game.

“It’s not too fast, the moments are never too big. You don’t see that in rookies — ever. Ever.”

Cuban is impressed with the way Doncic is able to capture the moment, then go out and does what needs to be done for that particular moment.

“It looks like he’s so much slower because he’s so under control,” Cuban said. “It’s kind of like people used to say Tracy McGrady was slow.

“Luka just plays at an even keel the whole time. He just knows how to play.”

That balance Doncic has displayed – the balance of knowing when to score, when to rebound, when to get his teammates involved, when to take total control of the game  – is an innate characteristic which makes him such a special player. And an innate characteristic all the great players possess.

“He’s impressive,” Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. said. “You see him on TV and everything and it’s hard to tell how tall he is until you get next to him.

“He’s a problem now and he’s going to be a problem for – what, he’s 19 or 20? So, we’re going to have to deal with that for 15, 18 more years, or whatever he’s lucky enough to play.”

Nance describes himself as “a fan” of Doncic who has admired his game from afar.

“He’s very refined, but I would say more so poised,” Nance said. “I mean, you never speed him up. He’s just got his own thing going on, just kind of cruising.

“You can throw whatever defender on him and he’s still got his own pace and his own speed to whatever he’s doing. So, like I said, I was thoroughly impressed, just as the rest of the league is.”

Doncic has been compared to legends like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.  Others believe he has some incredible passing qualities that rival those of Jason Kidd.

“You’re talking about a Hall of Famer and one of the greatest that ever played the (point guard) position, Nelson said of Kidd. “But they both love to pass the ball.

“I was watching Jason when he was in high school back in the day when that was OK, and you could just tell that Jason had qualities where he loved to set up other people. And I think Luka has the same thing.”

Borrego even went so far as to admit that he believes Doncic can glance into the future and see plays develop before they actually develops.

“He has great confidence, great swagger, understands the game at an extremely high level, and can almost read a play before it happens,” Borrego said. “He’s a step ahead of most of his opponents, he can play off the ball, he can play with the ball.

“He’s got great size, so it makes it tough (to defend) in the pick-and-roll. He can pass over defenses, he can hit the roller, hit the skip and make the three. He’s a special player who is only going to get better.”

A special player who gets cheers in opposing arenas during pre-game introductions, and a special player who has opposing fans oohing and aahing during games when they see him displaying his exceptional ball-handling and passing skills, along with his patented step-back 3-point shot all while flashing that effervescent smile.

“The charisma comes with not being afraid of the moment,” Cuban said. “When you see a kid out there who’s just playing basketball and not afraid, that’s where the charisma comes from. It’s not like he’s doing some shake every time, or he’s not doing this or not doing all of this.

“He’s just having fun, he’s just being a kid. I think it’s not so much charisma. I think people enjoy the joy.”

And that “joy” is precisely what the Mavs are enjoying, as Doncic jerseys are flying off the Mavs’ shelves as quickly as they arrive. In other words, fan across America are tracking everything Doncic does, basketball-wise, the same way Donnie Nelson did a few years ago.

The Single Guy Blog

My New Dream Girl

Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!


My Dream Girl’s Baby Daddy Revealed

Well after a month of stalking my dream girl’s facebook page I finally found out who her baby daddy is. To get you up to speed I was shocked a while back to find out my dream girl was pregnant. I had never even seen her post anything about a man in her life. Well after a long wait she finally tagged her baby daddy to a post about the baby. I of course had to click on his name and check him out. And of course he is a low ranking military guy. Now don’t get me wrong I respect our military. But in this area most of the military guys are not the most upstanding people. And this guy is no different. So prediction-in a year or two my dream girl will be a single mother,left by her baby daddy when he got transfered or cheated on her with some other flavor of the week. But hey that is the life of a single guy-watching the hot girls fall for the cool guys that don’t deserve them and will treat them like crap.


My Dream Girl Is Pregnant

I was stalking around Facebook the other night checking out different posts by people like I do when I am bored. I checked out the Facebook page of a girl I have always had a huge crush on. This girl is beautiful. My total dream girl. What did I see? A post saying she was pregnant. That’s right my dream girl is pregnant. Now don’t get me wrong I always knew and know I would never have a chance with this girl. But what surprised me is that she never talks about a man in her life. She never posts pictures of her and a guy. And in fact I always thought maybe she was a lesbian because she always posted pictures of her and her hot model girlfriends. So now I am wondering who is the father? Is she dating someone and just not posting it? Even in the comments on her posts about being pregnant everyone just congratulates her. They never mention a boyfriend. Did she get pregnant by having a drunken one night stand? Did she intentionally get pregnant even though she says it was a surprise finding out she was pregnant? I mean no offense but there is so much birth control around if a girl gets pregnant she is either really stupid or wanted to get pregnant. And I have never considered this girl to be stupid. And who is the guy and what is he like? Is he some military guy from Fort Drum? Is he a professional? Is he unemployed? And does he ever know or care he is going to have a baby with this goddess? So many unanswered questions! One thing for sure,I will be checking out her page a lot to see if I can get an idea of exactly who this lucky guy is. This guy that knocked up my dream girl!


2017-And Still Single

Well we are almost a month into 2017-and I am still single. I wonder if Miss Right will find me this year. She seemed like she was in hiding during 2016. I mean I realize a lot of things happened in 2016 and she was probable busy. My Miss Right was probable busy helping Trump get elected President. Miss Right most likely was working with Obama to fight this Isis problem. Miss Right was obviously tied up helping my Cowboys win the NFC East. Oh and I am totally sure my Miss Right was completely taken up with helping to stop this whole Global Warming situation. But come on enough is enough….come on Miss Right…put all this dam community service aside and find me already!


Scam Girls

I never thought I would fall for it-but I did. You see there is a large group of girls on the internet that try to scam guys. They try to get them to send them money with the promises they want to meet but need some help to get by. I always have thought I was smart about all this. When I start talking to a girl off one of the dating websites I always try to look her up to make sure she is real. Well I started texting a girl yesterday off the Seekingarrangement website I have been on for about a year. We were texting back and forth. I searched her number on facebook and found her profile. Everything seemed legit. She said she wanted a long term arrangement with an older guy. We talked until about 5pm. Then she said she was trying to get money for her baby sitter and gas in the car and if I would send her some money. She even said she was sorry she was asking and would pay me back when she got paid next week. So I sent her $50 through Paypal. She said thank you so much. I said your welcome. And that was it. I texted her a few times after that and no response. I sent her a friend request on facebook and she blocked me. I had fallen for it. A scam girl had gotten me! The funny part about the whole thing is she could have gotten way more from me if she had kept talking to me and kept me going. I mean seriously $50 is not much,hell I spent more then that on lunch yesterday. But it’s just the point I got had. But you live and learn. But one thing is for sure-if your on seekingarrangement.com and start talking to a girl with lots of tatoos from Elmira Ny that calls herself Hannah,don’t send her money! You can thank me later for saving you money!

War Is Coming

People don’t want to admit it but war is coming between the U.S. and North Korea. North Korea is getting close to having a long range Nuclear missile that can hit the U.S. Americans don’t have the stomach for war but they need to get it and fast. If North Korea is allowed to get a missile that can strike our home land the party is over. The war is not going to be pretty. Lots of people in South Korea will die and so will American soldiers. But war is the only way to stop the mad man in the North. The left wing Liberals,liberal media and lots of gutless Americans think that we can talk to the leader of North Korea to get him to stop his Nuclear and missle programs. But that just won’t work. The more we talk the more he keeps building. He now has a million man army. Now to be honest-again something the Liberal media will not tell you-a lot of those million soldiers in the North are just teenagers. When the real fighting starts a lot of that million is going to run home to mommie. Right now the boys think they are cool in a uniform fighting for their country,but when the bullets and bombs fly the coolness will end and they will drop their arms and run. But there will still be soldiers that fight. The war will start shortly with an air campaign. Once our bombings of the North start then North Korea will start bombing South Korea. Then China will get in as well as Japan. If we are lucky the Russians might sit this one out. They have no real interest in that area of the world and they know they have their hands full in Syria. The war will be short but bloody. And President Trump will carry the blame,when he is actually doing what Presidents before him should have done. They should have stopped North Korea long ago before they were strong enough to give us a battle. But yes America war is coming-so get ready for it!


Why Obama Care Didn’t Work

President Trump is now in the process of repealing and replacing Obama Care. Everyone knows Obama Care didn’t work,even if they do not want to admit it. What a lot of people don’t know is why it didn’t work. It is very simple-Obama Care didn’t work because to many people were forced to buy insurance. The insurance industry is a business,and as a business they need to make a profit. Insurance companies rely on more people having insurance then actually use it. But when Obama Care mandated that everyone had to buy insurance people instantly wanted to use the insurance they purchased. Before,when people didn’t have insurance if they got a cold they stayed in bed,had chicken soup and recovered in a few days. Now with people being forced to buy insurance you can bet as soon as they even got the sniffles they went to the doctor. Before Obama Care people bought insurance for emergencies. The people who had insurance knew that some day they would need it for a major illness,but did not use it for the slightest ailment. The new health care plan that has been introduced does not have a mandate. If they keep that then this new health care law should do fine.


Hollywood Is Out Of Touch

After watching and listing to some of the actors and actresses in the past week talk about President Trump I now know that Hollywood is out of touch with main stream America. Hollywood just can not deal with the fact that their views do not reflect American values. What is worst is Hollywood can not deal with losing the election. Clinton did in deed win the popular vote. But what people don’t want to admit is Clinton won that popular vote by winning NYC and the LA/Hollywood areas. A lot of people live in these areas but their values are not the values of main stream America. Clinton did not win the working voters in Michigan or the farmers in the Midwest. She did not win the Southern voters in the bible belt. Clinton did not win the retired population in Florida. The protesters this past week are showing this generations true colors. A generation that has always gotten a trophy even if they finished last. A generation that has always gotten their own way-from Gay rights to Womens equal rights. A generation that has been able to work less because the government will give them a hand out to make ends meet. Well Hollywood and NYC better buckle their seat belts because the next four years and beyond are going to be a very bumpy ride. President Trump is in the White House and main stream America has taken back their country!


President Trump In 7 More Days

Well its been a long road but in just 7 more days we will have a new President. The last year and a half has been up and down. For a while I actually had my doubts if Trump could do it. But he did! And it is pretty obvious Clinton supporters thought for a long time that she would be the next President. Hotels in the Washinton DC area reported a huge number of cancellations because Clinton supporters had already made reservations planning to come to see their candidate take the Oath of Office. Now most hotels are booked back up again with Trump supporters. To get a room in the Washington DC area next week it will cost over $1,000 a night. Who knows what the next four years will be like. Maybe Trump will be a great President and maybe he won’t. I am certain of one thing however,the liberal media is going crazy trying to figure out what happened. They still will not admit that they were out of touch with main stream America. The liberal media thought what they believed was what America believed. Trump hit a nerve with Americans. When I say Americans I am not talking about people in NYC or LA. Those people do not reflect true Americans. True Americans think the government has gotten out of control,that there is to much interference in our lives and special interest groups like the Gaye and Lesbian groups have gotten way to much attention over the past 8 years. America took their country back and next week their leader will take control of a country wanting and needing a change. God Bless President Trump and God Bless the USA!
