Becoming a District of Innovation would allow Duncanville ISD to have more local control and decision making power. As a District of Innovation, Duncanville would be able to adopt an Innovation Plan that includes exemptions from most of the same state laws that are not applicable to open enrollment school districts. On March 20th, the Duncanville ISD Board of Trustees approved a resolution to begin the process of becoming a District of Innovation. The Board appointed a District Advisory Committee (Committee) made up of teachers, staff and community members to develop Duncanville ISD’s Innovation Plan. If adopted, this Innovation Plan will be effective for five years. Click here for the Proposed Local Innovation Plan.
