Town Hall: Superintendent Shares Plans for Enhancing Academics
ISD Superintendent Dr. Marc Smith recently hosted a district Town Hall meeting
at Duncanville High School, which had more than 200 people in attendance. At
the Nov. 17th meeting, Dr. Smith shared information about the top
accountability rating for our schools, district statistics, updated bond
information and plans to expand academic offerings.
highlights from the district Town Hall included:
Plans to open an all-day pre-kindergarten academy
at Acton and Hastings elementary schools
Returning Junior ROTC to the district
Development of a Collegiate Academy, which already
has a designated location in DHS and new technology has been added
Consideration of choice schools in available
space at some campuses
Dr. Smith also
stressed the importance of listening to our parents, students, community
members and employees. To gather feedback, Dr. Smith encouraged people to
submit questions for the district Town Hall. Many were answered at the meeting,
but because of the high volume of questions, he asked that people include
contact information and he is now reaching back out to those individuals and
provided responses to their questions.
