The goal of the Duncanville ISD prekindergarten program is for students to develop skills necessary for success in public school curriculum, including language, mathematics and social skills.
For the 2017-2018 school year, Duncanville ISD is offering limited enrollment in the district’s new, full day prekindergarten. There will be four full day classes for students who meet at least one of the five criteria for prekindergarten eligibility. Acceptance to the program will be based upon available space at the time of enrollment. The tuition-free, full day prekindergarten classes will be housed at Hastings and Acton elementary schools. Duncanville ISD will also offer a tuition-based program at Acton Elementary.
The district also offers half day prekindergarten programs at eight of its nine elementary schools. See more information below under ‘Current Programs.
Students qualifying for tuition-free prekindergarten must be four years of age by September 1, 2017 and meet one of the following criteria:
Duncanville ISD half day and full day tuition-based programs will increase as needed and space allows. Half day programs will increase when the district identifies 12 additional students qualifying for the service as required by the Texas Education Agency. Full day tuition-free programs will be capped at 44 bilingual students and 44 general education/ESL students for a total of 88.
Registration for all offered prekindergarten classes will be held at the new Acton Elementary 7095 Wheatland Road, Dallas, on the following dates:
