President Biden calls Dallas ISD superintendent, thanks him for holding firm on mask requirements
Superintendent Hinojosa received a phone call from President Biden thanking him for the district’s decision to defy the governor’s order prohibiting masks. As of August 10th, masks are required to be worn in all district buildings. District officials are working on a temporary virtual option for students although there is currently no state funding for virtual learning. Dallas ISD will likely be fined for enforcing the mask mandate, and some outside fundraising efforts have begun to assist districts in this position.
