Dallas ISD Alternative Certification Program's mission is to prepare college graduates and career changers to become top tiered teachers in the district by increasing the critical thinking, academic achievement, and social and emotional development of all students.
Our training is about helping you serve OUR students, right here in Dallas ISD. You’ll participate in an intensive pre-service training program, followed by a year-long internship leading your own classroom in Dallas ISD. During your internship, you’ll learn from the district’s top teachers and receive personalized coaching on the practical skills you’ll need to be a great teacher in Dallas. Those who successfully complete the program will receive a teaching certificate.
