    Reentry Information for Parents and Staff


  • This Education Evolution page lays out the district’s plans to reopen and operate schools to ensure the safety of students and campus staff amid the continuing challenge of COVID-19.  It lists plans for campus reentry developed with the input and recommendations from government officials, health authorities, teachers, parents and district educators. The content is meant to inform parents and community members about the many safeguards the district is putting into place as schools open during the ongoing pandemic. In addition to in-school learning, Dallas ISD is considering offering at-home virtual learning for families that are interested. This page will be continually updated with additional information.

    The Dallas ISD Board of Trustees on July 23 approved moving the start date to Sept. 8. Go here to learn more.
