Tornado Relief Update

On the evening of October 20, 2019, tornadoes carved a 12-mile path through our Dallas community in 35 minutes, impacting an estimated 150,000 residents. The devastation included significant damage to neighborhood homes, businesses, and nine United to Learn Dallas ISD partner campuses. From water and roof damage, gas leaks, tree destruction and power outages, to the entire structure losses, the extent of the impact varied widely across schools.
