Policy Acknowledgement and Compliance Training starts Sept. 3

In compliance with state and federal laws, Dallas ISD requires that all employees view compliance training videos and complete an annual policy acknowledgement. The window to complete this process for the 2019-2020 school year will open on Sept. 3. For more information, visit Staff News.

Policy acknowledgement

Employees will be required to log in to the annual policy acknowledgement application at http://PolicyAcknowledgement.dallasisd.org/ using their EAD credentials.


Online training for the 2019-2020 school year will be available to all district employees in Cornerstone at https://dallasisd.csod.com. Employees will need to use their EAD username and password to log in to Cornerstone.
