National Substitute Appreciation Week May 6th - May 10th

Dear Dallas ISD Substitute Teachers,


Thank you for your willingness to substitute teach in our district and what you do for the students. You make a difference in our schools and we appreciate you for your efforts.

On behalf of everyone here at the district office, we want to thank you for filling in when the permanent teacher is out of the classroom.


As part of national Substitute Teacher Appreciation Week (SubWeek), we invite you to participate in STEDI.org/Giveaway by clicking on the link. When the website opens click on “Enter to Win” and register. You may win an Apple Watch or one of many other prizes to be given away. There is nothing to buy, but it’s available to you and sign up for free.


Dallas ISD Substitute Office will also host a District “‘GIVEAWAY RAFFLE” for a chance to win a Starbucks gift card for our extraordinary and dedicated Substitute Teachers. We will showcase 3 winners each day and recognize those winners in the May/June newsletter.


Again, thank you for your service.

Substitute TIPS!

Four Qualities of an Exceptional Substitute Teacher

Don't Forget to Update Your Contact Information

With the end of the school year quickly approaching, the Substitute Office will be sending out Re-enrollment Forms for the 2019-2020 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
  2. Select DISD Employee Self-Service
  3. Select Employee Self Service
  4. Select Human Capital Management Information
  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.
