Micciche Joins Statewide Association Board

(Austin) — The Texas Association of School Boards has announced that Dan Micciche of Dallas ISD has been elected to an interim term representing Region 10, large district position C. He fills the seat on the TASB Board of Directors that was created when Mike Morath became Texas Education Commissioner. Micciche will begin a full three-year term at the close of the TASB/Texas Association of School Administrators Convention in September.

Micciche has served on the Dallas ISD school board for three-and-a-half years. Prior to his election to the Dallas ISD school board, Micciche started and led a school partnership program between Akin Gump and James W. Fannin Elementary School that provided tutoring, mentoring, field trips, safety and health programs, and reading/art/music programs. His firm was one of three companies to receive the statewide Employers for Education Excellence Gold Award from the Texas Education Agency in 2011, which was awarded for the promotion of community involvement in Texas public schools. The school partnership program helped James W. Fannin earn exemplary status in 2009.

Micciche is a partner at the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld in Dallas, and he joined the firm immediately after graduating from law school in 1981. The practice is in the business transaction area and tax planning and litigation. Micciche received his bachelor of arts from Stony Brook University in New York and earned his JD at the University of Chicago Law School.

TASB is a nonprofit association established in 1949 to serve local public school boards. School board members are the largest group of publicly elected officials in the state. The districts they represent serve more than 5.2 million students.
