Duncanville Independent School District

Duncanville Independent School District

Duncanville Independent School District is a school district based in Duncanville, Texas (USA).

Duncanville ISD serves most of the city of Duncanville and portions of DeSoto, Dallas, and Cedar Hill. The district is receiving a high number of Hispanics coming in, and a slightly decreasing number of African Americans. This can be due to the Hispanics moving in from areas such as Oak Cliff and South Dallas, and African Americans moving to areas such as Cedar Hill, DeSoto, and to a lesser extent, Midlothian.

In 2009, the school district was rated "academically acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.[1]

School uniforms

Duncanville ISD has a mandatory school dress code policy at all of its schools since fall 2006.[2] The Texas Education Agency specifies that the parents and/or guardians of students zoned to a school with uniforms may apply for a waiver to opt out of the uniform policy so their children do not have to wear the uniform;[3] parents must specify "bona fide" reasons, such as religious reasons or philosophical objections.
