Parent Services COVID-19 Announcement

  • To slow the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in our community, all Dallas ISD schools will close indefinitely. This action follows advice from the Dallas County Health and Human Services department (DCHHS).

    We recognize the significant impact this extended closure will have on the entire community, especially for families who depend on the district for critical services.

    While our classrooms are empty, our work on behalf of children continues. Dallas ISD considers the health and safety of our staff and students our top priority. All community meetings have been canceled until further notice.

    Parent Attendance Success Initiative (PASI) has concluded for the 2019-2020 school year.

    The Parent Services Department is working with other organizations in our community to provide our families assistance in these hard times.
