January 2012 is School Board Recognition Month, and we’re blessed to have an outstanding group of leaders here at Duncanville ISD. “They selflessly give of themselves to ensure that decisions directly affecting our local schools are made by representatives of this community,” said Superintendent Dr. Alfred Ray. “In these challenging times, they face difficult choices and shoulder critical respon­sibilities.”

A vital link between the community and the classroom, Duncanville ISD school board members bear responsibility for an annual budget of $85 million for a district which numbers nearly 13,000 students, 1700 staff, and 18 campuses. They face many difficult challenges and hard decisions, but voluntarily tackle the enormous job of governing our district in an effort to affect the present and future lives of our children. We don’t often take the time to say thank you to these community servants for their hard work and dedication to the overall goal of promoting student achievement.

In honor of School Board Recognition Month, we invite you to join us at the January School Board meeting on Thursday, January 12 to honor the Duncanville ISD Board of Trustees. The meeting begins at 7:00 pm at the Duncanville ISD Technology Building (103 E. Wheatland Road). To our board members, we are grateful for your guidance, decision making, and thoughtful planning. Thank you for helping our kids shine!
