We are so excited to inform you that United to Learn is providing Jeff Anderson PD on August 10th for all ACE 3.0 and 4.0 campuses!!!! We have included the invitation and sign-up link. The deadline for participants to register is July 10th, so please make sure that everybody completes the registration by the deadline.


Each campus will send their Literacy CIC and three teachers, 2nd - 4th grade literacy (4 participants per campus). They will be able to select an English or a Spanish version of Patterns of Power on the registration link. It is still undecided whether or not it will be in person or virtual but they will let us know as soon as it is decided. If it is virtual, the books will be mailed to the participants.

BILINGUAL CANDIDATES

President Trump signed a proclamation halting work visas and expanding restrictions on persons entering the US or seeking to obtain visas to enter the US, which includes H-1B and J-1 visas. As a District, we rely on our H-1B program and J-1 Spain partnership to meet the needs of our students in dual language programs. With a national teacher shortage of bilingual teachers, HCM strongly encourages you to hire from the list of at large (excess) employees or recent self-reported bilingual TMS applicants before you leave for Summer break. The attached spreadsheet reflects bilingual vacancies along with candidates that could be contacted for interview. Please let us know if you need any support in identifying any viable candidates to meet your campus hiring needs.


If you have a candidate who was previously recommended and will be impacted by this executive order, we will be reaching out to you within 24 hours to repost your vacancy and help you source new candidates.

For questions regarding this order please email visa@dallasisd.org.

Stipend Information

Staff Incentives: The goal of the district is to improve the academic performance of students at the ACE campuses by re-staffing them with a strong leadership team and a high concentration of teachers who are highly effective and are considered Proficient One or higher under the district’s Teacher Excellence Initiative (TEI). Recognizing the challenges that a turnaround environment poses, the district developed an incentive plan to attract highly effective teachers who choose to transfer to an ACE campus.
