    Media Inquiries

    Please contact Athletics Communications Coordinator Todd Lamb or the Dallas ISD Communication Services News & Information staff for all media interview requests regarding Athletics. Do not contact athletics coordinators, coaches, or student-athletes directly for interview requests or administration of surveys or questionnaires. All interviews must be approved and arranged by the Athletics Communications Coordinator.

    Postgame interviews with the head coach are permitted without prior approval, but topics should relate directly to the team and keep focus on the students, coaches, season, the most recent game, or the team's next opponent. If a reporter wishes to conduct interviews about another topic, please contact the Athletics Communications Coordinator to make future arrangements. Please work with the head coach to request students for postgame interviews. Do not interview a student without approval from the head coach. 

    Media Passes

    Media passes are required to attend all Dallas ISD Athletics events. Media credential requests must be made online using the link below. No phone calls or emails will be accepted. No credential requests for that week’s games may be made after Wednesday at 5 p.m. Late requests will not be considered. You must fill out a separate form for each individual in your organization who plans to attend the game. You will be able to request either a single-game pass or a season pass.

    Media credentials are for working members of the media: newspapers, sports publications, radio, and television. Online-only organizations will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Individuals who publish only on social media will not be approved. Previous receipt of credentials is not a guarantee for future approval. Sideline passes are reserved for media members who use professional equipment to record photos and video of the event. Individuals who record using only a mobile device or tablet will not be approved.

    If approved, credentials must be picked up at the Dallas ISD Athletics Department office at 9400 North Central Expressway, Dallas, Texas 75231. Please bring a photo ID with you when you pick up your credential in suite 608. Credentials will not be mailed. Credentials may be picked up Monday through Thursday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and on Friday between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Each season pass is good for the entire 2023-2024 academic year at all Dallas ISD venues. Each single-game pass is good only for the date and venue of the game you requested.

    Only the individual listed on the pass may pick up his or her credential unless prior approval has been given by the athletics communications coordinator. Credentials must be picked up before you can attend a game. We do not have a pass list available at our stadiums. Credentials are non-transferable.

    Photos and video from Dallas ISD venues cannot be sold for profit to the general public or our student-athletes, their families, our coaches, or our schools. Violation of this policy will lead to immediate revocation of credentials for the offender and everyone in his/her organization.

    Please be aware that press areas in Dallas ISD venues close 30 minutes following the conclusion of all athletics events. Please make proper arrangements to clear the press box, field, and other press areas, so stadium managers can lock the stadium in a timely fashion.


    Credential Application for 2024-2025 will be available in mid-to-late July.
