The Duncanville ISD Board of Trustees approved the 2018-2019 Academic Calendar at the February Board meeting. Calendar option #2 was selected.
The district’s Calendar Planning Committee provided feedback that identified two main goals – end the school year prior to Memorial Day and provide more balanced fall and spring semesters. To achieve these two goals required an earlier start for the 2018-2019 school year.
Three draft calendars were shared with employees and community members, and additional feedback collected through a survey. The Board of Trustees listened to the feedback and reviewed the survey results before making a decision to choose calendar option #2, which can be viewed here.
The 2018-2019 school year will begin for students Wednesday, August 15, 2018 and end Wednesday, May 22, 2019. Teachers will report back Thursday, August 2, 2018 and be out of school Thursday, May 23, 2019.
