Hays CISD and Hays High School have made great strides by banning the confederate flag and eliminating Dixie as the fight song at Hays High School, but we also know the conversation continues regarding the rebel mascot. We are listening. The district and campus have both received inquiries regarding the mascot in recent weeks. Additionally, there is a tremendous amount of dialog on social media and a student-led petition is underway to request a mascot change. Because of the high interest in this topic, including from students, and to ensure that all Hays High School students have a chance to participate in the conversation, the district will conduct a survey of Hays High School students to gauge their sentiment.
Hays Consolidated Independent School District (Hays CISD) Superintendent Dr. Eric Wright announced Monday that Dedrah Ginn, current Dahlstrom Middle School assistant principal, will serve as the new principal for the campus beginning with the 2020-2021 school year.

Nine days ago, nearly nine heartbreaking minutes were captured on video. In those minutes, George Floyd was murdered. Today, all four of those responsible were finally criminally charged. Mr. Floyd’s murder has opened, yet again, a suffering in America that continues to wound our collective soul. Following the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his close confidant and Civil Rights Movement icon in his own right, former Atlanta Mayor and UN Ambassador Andrew Young, has said, “We were never concerned with who killed Martin Luther King, but what killed Martin Luther King" – an observation that still haunts us more than 50 years later. It is my hope and commitment that, this time, we can all do our part to unite in the cause of love and healing. Silence on the matter is no longer acceptable, because it is tantamount to complicity.
Hays CISD Superintendent Dr. Eric Wright announced Friday that Dr. Michael Watson, current Dahlstrom Middle School principal, will serve as the new principal for Simon Middle School beginning with the 2020-2021 school year. Dr. Watson joined the Hays CISD team in 2014, as the principal of Live Oak Academy and led that campus to stellar success, doubling the number of graduates at the campus in prior years to nearly 200. In 2017, Dr. Watson became principal of Dahlstrom Middle School and helped that campus move from a “B” grade to an “A,” with distinctions.
