Check the datebook
As the district begins to have in-person events, it’s important to avoid conflicts. While planning for the upcoming year, the Districtwide Datebook should be your chief means of scheduling districtwide activities.
The Districtwide Datebook can be found at https://www.dallasisd.org/datebook. Placing your events on the datebook will help others avoid booking events on the date of your school or department activity. Departments who already have scheduled dates for events and activities are encouraged to push them to the datebook as soon as possible.
The datebook is only for events that involve (or are of interest to) the entire school district. For example: STEM Day, Discover Dallas ISD, MLK oratory competition, recognition events and opportunities, job fairs, etc.
Department directors and administrative assistants are asked to update their department calendars (when available) and the districtwide datebook by following the steps below. If your department has a calendar on the district’s website, post your events there with the following information:
- the name of the event or activity
- a short description of the event
- the start and end time
- the venue name and address of the event location
- a department contact person and phone number or email address
- If you need help pushing an event from your department calendar to the districtwide datebook, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Departments that do not have a website-based calendar can add districtwide events to the datebook by sending an email with the information above to email@example.com at least a week in advance of the activity.
