  • About OTI

    The Office of Transformation and Innovation (OTI) is on a mission to provide every student with a "best-fit" school that matches their specific interests, aspirations, and preferred learning styles. We pursue this work through four key departments and initiatives:

    Transformation and Innovation Schools

    The district leads a competitive Public School Choice application process to identify, design, and launch Transformation and Innovation Schools to meet the needs and interests of our diverse learners.

    Personalized Learning Department

    Personalized Learning (PL) is a one-size-fits-one instructional strategy used by campuses and educators throughout the district. The PL Department provides robust resources, training, and support to schools and practitioners to use this model. Visit dallasisd.org/personalizedlearning for more information.


    Centralized Enrollment Department

    With Dallas ISD's new Centralized Enrollment Department, finding the best-fit school for your child has never been easier. The Centralized Enrollment team hosts five enrollment offices known as "One Centers" throughout the district that provide a one-stop-shop for parents to learn about their wide variety of school choices, set up campus visits, and enroll in a school of their choice.
