We are a charter school that has seen phenomenal growth in the past years. We started our school in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas in 2001. Since then we have expanded to six campuses. We have campuses in DeSoto, Cockrell Hill, Grand Prairie, Wilmer and in Pleasant Grove with the main campus located on 2602 W. Illinois Ave. in Dallas.
Golden Rule has enjoyed great acceptance from the community as evidenced with a waiting list that is generated every school year.
Parents have embraced the educational goals and the safe environment that our campuses provide. Golden Rule provides a small school atmosphere that is conducive to learning and fostering relationships with our parents and students alike.
We will never forget why this school was started in the first place: To make a difference in the lives of our students.
We will never forget the foundation it was started on: Faith, integrity, and trust in a higher power.
Golden Rule is proud of its staff, faculty, students, and parents. We will continue to seek new and innovative methods to better ourselves and our student population. As community support continues to grow and embrace the “Golden Rule Way’” we will continue to look into expanding into other sectors of this great metroplex in which we live and even throughout this great State of ours.
Hello GRS Family, Golden Rule is launching an online survey May 26th through June 25th to gather input from the community – parents, students, staff, community members, etc. – in advance of the district developing the application plan to receive the allocated $4.6M. The purpose of these funds is to address the impact that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have on elementary and secondary schools and students. TEA strongly encourages school systems to plan for how to use these one-time federal funds expeditiously over the entire covered period. The U.S. Department of Education’s (USDE) initial grant award notice to Texas makes immediately available two-thirds of the total federal appropriation to Texas under ARP (ESSER III). The remaining one-third of ARP (ESSER III) funds will be released to schools in the amounts indicated on the TEA allocation document and will also be supplemental to all other state funds. By the formula, Golden Rule will receive a total of $4.6M – $3.1M immediately available, and $1.5M to be released at a later date upon approval of the state plan. FUNDING PARAMETERS: Golden Rule total expected allocation - $4.6M One-time, non-renewable grant (funds) Funds may be used through September 2024 There are defined limitations to what may be funded Charter must review every 6 months, plans may evolve as needed Our administration will be developing the complete application plan for funds based on staff and community input, along with district and campus leadership, and research of best practices.
