“I want to thank our community for their support and confidence in our district,” said Dr. Marc Smith, Duncanville ISD Superintendent. “We are committed to providing our scholars with the best learning environments possible and we are committed to being good stewards of our tax dollars.”
The bonds will generate funding for architectural renovations, a Career & Technical Education expansion at Duncanville High School, replacement of HVAC systems and roofs districtwide, school bus replacements, safety and security updates at all campuses, ADA compliance updates, exterior improvements and repairs, fuel tank replacement, and technology infrastructure and network upgrades. It will also allow the district to replace digital projectors with interactive monitors across the district.
The bond package was a result of recommendations from the Duncanville ISD Citizens’ Facility Advisory Committee, made up of a diverse group of Duncanville ISD staff, parents, and community members. They met over the course of a few months to study and prioritize the district’s needs. This was Duncanville ISD’s first bond election since 2014.
