Dallas ISD greatly values our international candidates, who have served Dallas ISD's critical shortage areas including: bilingual education, special education, mathematics, and science. If you hold a teaching certificate from another country, you must apply to have your out-of-country credentials reviewed through TEA. In most cases, if an international candidate did not earn an undergraduate or graduate degree from the United States, he or she will also need to pass the TOEFL exam before becoming eligible to teach in the district.
The Dallas ISD H-1B Visa Program allows the district to recruit and retain international educators for critical shortage areas. As the regulations for H-1B visas continue to evolve, the Visa Department is working to maintain the program at a level that is feasible, compliant, and financially stable. Therefore, there will be a cap instituted for the 2021-2022 school year and only available in the areas of elementary bilingual. If you would like to inquire about H-1B visas, our recruitment process, or the number of visas still available, you may contact email@example.com.
