Welcome to the 2017 - 2018 School Year!

A Message from Dr. Melissa Williams-Scott

“You’re here for a Reason. It’s totally true. You’re part of a world that is counting on you.” Nancy Tillman, You’re Here for a Reason.

You are back for another exciting year of Limitless Opportunities in Dickinson ISD. We all come into education for different reasons, but in the end…we all have a reason and purpose for being right where we are at this moment.


We want to welcome everyone for the 2017-2018 School Year. Many projects occurred over the summer to hopefully better support instruction in the classroom. The Google Suite, or G-Suite has many updated options to use for collaboration among both students and staff, we are adding 300 more Chromebooks district wide, and Windows 10/Office 2016 has been installed on all district machines to further support your work.


The Technology Team is here to support you. Please check out our website at http://www.dickinsonisd.org/page/tech.home_original to see who holds what roles in the district and get quick tips and tricks. We will send out the TechTidByte at least monthly. Make certain you read them; they carry important information to help you in the classroom.
