This summer the Dallas ISD Substitute Department will be offering opportunities for summer professional development. Summer professional development will allow substitute teachers to interact and share experiences in a supportive environment. Trainings will be held during the month of June 2018. Participants will only be able to make a seat reservation at this time. We would like to create substitute professional development based off of the summer professional development survey. The trainings are voluntary and will be non-compensated. For more information about training dates, please email

Having the first wave of testing under our belts, we are familiar with the additional support our campuses need during testing weeks. The first two weeks in May wrap up state testing.

Take a minute to review the district testing schedule below. Also please remember, only substitute teachers holding a valid state teaching certification and have been properly trained prior to the test are allowed to administer any state tests. All others should assist with additional campus hall monitors and support duties. Thank you in advance for assisting campuses during this very important time!

With the end of the school year quickly approaching, the Substitute Office will be sending out Re-enrollment Forms for the 2018 - 2019 school year. This form along with other important information will be sent to your mailing address that we have on file with the district. It is extremely important that you take a moment to log into Oracle to confirm or update your mailing address. See the steps below to updating your mailing address as well as resetting your oracle if you have forgotten your login information.

How to update your mailing address in Oracle:

  1. Log into Oracle by clicking here

  5. Select Personal Information

You will see all your contact information with the district. If any changes need to be made you can select update in the appropriate fields.

*Be aware if you are updating your phone number it MUST follow the same (***) ***-**** format. Also, that will change your phone number login (not pin) for Aesop (updates are made nightly).

*The Substitute Office CANNOT update personal information for substitutes, it must be made in Oracle.

Resetting your Oracle Password on a Biometric Clock:

From any campus Biometric Clock, using your employee ID number you can select "Password Reset" and enter your employee ID number. It will ask for your fingerprint and then reset your password to your SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER (no dashes). Once you log in, it will ask you to change your password.

If you need further assistance or have forgotten your username, please contact the Technical Assistance Center (TAC) at 972-925-5630. Unfortunately, the substitute office has no way of resetting it on your behalf.

This self-paced course is a good introduction to Spanish for those who have never studied it before, or a good supplemental program for students who may be struggling in their school Spanish class, or a good refresher course for people who would like to brush up on Spanish after years of not having studied it. While there are many aspects of learning a language, this course focuses almost exclusively on Spanish grammar.
