• DISTRICT OF INNOVATION (DOI)

  • WHAT IS DOI? 

    District of Innovation (DOI) is not a program, it is flexibility provided to school districts from the Texas Education Agency that allows a district to hire highly qualified individuals based on their educational or vocational background.

    Dallas ISD is able to hire non-certified educators initially, but educators are required to join an alternative certification program and seek certification once they have been hired. Dallas ISD has expanded new certification exemptions for professionals who do not currently hold SBEC certification/teaching credentials when high-quality, certified teachers are not available in hard-to-fill and high-demand vacant positions.

    Flexibility on teacher certification has been expanded to include the following:
    EC-6 Core Subjects/Core Subjects 4-8
    Secondary ELAR, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies

    REQUIREMENTS: 

    • Conferred Bachelor's Degree, minimum 2.5 GPA
    • 24 Credit hours in Core Subjects or Content Specific Areas
    • Not eligible for SPED/ESL/Bilingual

    PLEASE NOTE:

    A DOI evaluation and eligibility does not guarantee job placement. Employment is contingent upon meeting all requirements for hire through Human Capital Management.
