Dallas County Schools Superintendent Hattie Shelton noted that many parents hold out on shopping until the tax-free weekend, hoping to get all of the necessary supplies for the school year as cheap as possible.

It is important to stay organized in your school supply buying and to know how to navigate.

This is also an opportunity to truly shop local by keeping all purchases inside Dallas County.

Most school supplies needed can be found in local stores.
