DCR1 HAS MOVED TO A NEW WEBSITE AT WWW.BISONPRIDE.ORG. THIS WEBSITE IS NO LONGER BEING MAINTAINED WILL BE REMOVED SOON. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR BOOKMARK.
The Dallas County R-1 District, partnering with the Dallas County Historical Society, is currently working to provide members of the community and researchers the opportunity to digitally access records of each individual school district in the county, prior to the consolidation.  What is currently Dallas County R-I School district was at one time, fifty seven independent school districts. 

We hope that this new feature will provide not only former students with the ability to view their non-academic records, but also allow others to take a look into our school and the history of Dallas County.  We also feel this information will be valuable to genealogist who are doing research about family members that formerly lived in Dallas County.  Check back often for updates.
