To improve overall IT Security, Dallas ISD will require two-factor authentication for all Office 365 systems for all staff—central and campus—starting in January. During the week of Jan. 10, all Dallas ISD teachers and staff will receive a registration email from Duo, the Dallas ISD-approved two-factor provider, requiring they register and set up of two-factor authentication. To learn more about Duo, visit. https://www.dallasisd.org/Page/77504
Effective the evening of Jan. 18, teachers and other staff will be required to use two-factor authentication when not on the district’s network (wired or wi-fi) to access Office 365 products (Outlook, OneDrive, Teams, etc.). Staff who have not completed the two-factor registration process will not be able to access Office 365 systems from outside the Dallas ISD network until they have completed the Duo registration. Even if registration is not completed in advance, users will still be given the opportunity to register for Duo when they try to access the system. Please contact the Service Desk at 972-925-5630 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. for assistance.
