We are looking forward to everyone participating to celebrate a new year together and hear from Dallas ISD Superintendent Stephanie Elizalde.

Identify a viewing location/format

You are encouraged to identify a location that is appropriate for your campus or department (i.e., conference room, auditorium, cafeteria, etc.) to view the convocation, including individual computer stations. Keep in mind that the district encourages responsible distancing when possible.

Select a convocation lead

This person will be responsible for setting up the viewing area if you are watching as a group and the event station from which all event elements that have been delivered (i.e., lunches and SWAG bags) can be distributed.


Jason’s Deli lunches (sandwich, chips, and cookie) will be delivered to each campus and department between 9 and 11 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 8. No further action is required of campuses or departments to coordinate food orders or delivery.
