Superintendent’s Welcome


Welcome to the Dawson Independent School District.  I am truly honored to serve as your Superintendent of Schools.    

Dawson Independent School District has earned a reputation for excellence, and the boundless opportunities that extend beyond the classroom setting are exemplary.  We offer robust options for students at all grade levels, including co-curricular and extracurricular activities.  DISD offers Spanish and physical education to all students and band to our 6th-12th grade students.  In addition, students have the opportunity to participate in various sports in Junior High and High School, along with the Dawson Area Youth Sports Association for younger students.

The people in the Dawson Bulldog community make a difference every day for our students!  Our staff is dedicated to meeting each child’s academic, social and emotional needs. Our School Board and district leadership are committed to providing each school with the necessary resources to ensure success. 

We pride ourselves on working tirelessly to prepare our students to be successful leaders of the 21st century.  Dawson ISD motto is "Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow!".  We are committed to all students in DISD receiving an engaging, innovative, and academically challenging instructional program.  

Student safety and security continue to be a high priority in the Dawson Independent School District. We take a proactive approach by regularly evaluating our procedures and practices, working closely with local law enforcement, having on staff security officers, and making necessary changes to improve the safety and security of all staff and students when applicable.  All of our schools promote safety and positive student behavior through daily instruction.
