Instructional Learning Plan


Duncanville ISD believes in providing students choices in how they learn, and this philosophy will continue as we embrace a new choice program beginning in the 2020-2021 school year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our students will now have an opportunity to choose from two instructional paths: in-person and virtual.
