Hinojosa to Host Final Dallas District ISD State Address – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Outgoing ISD Dallas Superintendent Dr. Michael Hinojosa will hold his final State of the District address on Friday.

He is expected to discuss the future of the district and the pandemic-era challenges facing students.

Hinojosa’s office has released a preview of what Hinojosa will discuss. Topics include “Creating a New Narrative for Urban Schools,” the District’s Role in Job Creation, and Details on “Innovative New Projects,” a preview press release.

Hinojosa will also discuss the recent passing of the greatest bond in state history, district initiatives and student performance.

The State of the District address will begin at noon.

Hinojosa, who announced in January that he was stepping down as superintendent, first launched state of the district addresses in 2019.

Hinojosa, 65, has not said publicly what his next plans are. The district school board is expected to narrow candidates for his replacement this spring and have someone in place by the start of the 2022-23 school year.

Local political observers have speculated whether Hinojosa will seek public office — possibly as early as Dallas’s next mayoral race in 2023.
