What Can the Chamber Do For Education In Oak Cliff?

We all know that our kids need a great education to be competitive when it’s time to get a job or start a business. What does that look like? What can different people from different walks of life do to help our neighborhood schools? How can the Chamber help?

Tell us your thoughts on education in Oak Cliff. Share what you have seen that works well for our kids. Brag on your school, or share with us special news or info about your school. The OCC Education Committee wants to know.

Want to get involved? Join the Education Committee on the 4th Wednesday of every month at the Chamber Offices (1001 N. Bishop Ave.), to hear about the latest education initiatives for the area.
