All participating Dallas ISD coaches are eligible for additional compensation based on their participation in our program. Before participating, coaches should fill out a stipend agreement from the Student Activities Forms page and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As referenced in the stipend agreement, all coaches must complete 2 professional development sessions through the Dallas Urban Debate Alliance. We are finalizing a set of online training sessions, which will be posted here soon for coaches to view at their own pace.
Our training videos produced by the Atlanta debate league are a great resource with feedback from experienced UDL coaches on a variety of topics such as getting teams prepared for their first tournament, how to run practices, and how to help students cope with losing debates.
