8th Grade Endorsement Night Meetings

It’s time for 8th grade students to begin planning their high school careers. Throughout January, the district will hold Endorsement Night meetings for students and parents so they can choose which path they’ll pursue according to the Texas Foundation High School Program.

Duncanville ISD offers all five available endorsements to students:

  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
  • Business and Industry
  • Public Services
  • Arts and Humanities
  • Multi-Disciplinary Studies

All 8th grade students are currently learning about the endorsements and are examining which best fits their own interests and strengths. The Texas Education Agency requires each student to select an endorsement before the first class of their 9th grade year accompanied by a parent signature.


The district is offering three meetings in January at our middle schools where parents can learn more about endorsements. Each will be held from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

January 16 – Kennemer

January 25 – Reed

January 30 – Byrd
