• The Career Management System (CMS)
    In Dallas ISD, Central staff play a key role in raising student achievement by supporting and empowering the work of our campuses. To raise student achievement in Dallas ISD, each of the district’s 20,000 employees must be working toward a shared vision, focused on the same outcomes, and striving for excellence. The Career Management System (CMS) is a tool for defining, supporting and rewarding excellence for central, support, and non-instructional staff. The Performance Management Team is available to assist with any questions.

    Frequently asked questions regarding the End of Year Review process are outlined below: 

    What are the required steps in the  End of Year Review process?

    To simplify the End of Year process, there is NO employee self-review to complete in 2017-2018. End of Year reviews will be queued for appraisers online in Cornerstone on May 1, 2018.  Reviews should be completed  and an in-person should be held,  on or before the final day of an employee's work calendar for 2017-2018.  Please see the CMS Guidebook for information about the CMS Annual appraisal cycle. 

    Is an in-person conference with the appraiser required as a portion of the End of Year review process?

    Yes.  An in-person conference should be scheduled by the appraiser to review the employee’s progress and ratings, and to address barriers and roadblocks to achieving results and impact. 

    My employee is new to the district or position.  Should I complete an End of Year Review?

    Employees hired on or before April 1, 2018, will be assigned a review task during the EOY review process.  Employees hired after this date will not require an annual review.

    I am being rated under the Leader of Other rubric, but I do not formally manage others.  How should I rate indicators that do not apply to me?

    Job title and position determine employee placement on the Dallas ISD Leadership rubric.  In cases where a position may manage a program or initiative rather than direct reports, please select No Rating (N/R) in the rating scale for applicable indicators.  Indicators marked N/R will not count toward the overall score in the End of Year Review. 

    I am an appraiser/manager, and my list of direct reports is not correct. How can I change this?

    CMS feeds from Oracle. To make an update to assigned appraisers, please use the DISD Online Evaluation Supervisor function in Oracle, or request an update to your assigned appraisers by emailing careermanagement@dallasisd.org.

    Where can I access technical resourcs for completing the fall task online in Cornerstone?
