Bond Construction Continues, Some Projects Nearly Complete
As we count down the weeks until the beginning of the new school year, several of Duncanville ISD’s building projects are nearing completion. All summer long, construction crews have been working on new campuses, building expansions, upgraded security and technology features and refurbished classrooms at many of the district’s schools. When the work is finished, every one of the district’s 18 school buildings will have been improved. The work is funded by the $102.545 million bond package passed overwhelmingly by voters in November 2014.
Hastings Elementary School
Duncanville High School
The first project concentrated on upgrading and improving security at the campus. Workers installed new security cameras and security card entry points. They also installed additional exterior lighting at key points outside the building. Automatically locking door hardware is being installed on classroom doors. This work will continue into the fall, as scheduled, during evening hours when the building is empty.

The kitchen renovation and expansion is coming along: walls are up, flooring is being installed and the new equipment will be in place by the end of July.
Roofing began the second week of July and should be complete by the end of the month. Sheetrock is being installed inside the kitchen and administrative areas.
