Safety and Security
The safety, health, and well-being of Duncanville ISD students, staff, volunteers, and visitors is a top priority. The purpose of this webpage is to provide Duncanville ISD parents, students, volunteers, and visitors with information on district safety programs and links to helpful resources. These links are suggested as additional information and resources that may be helpful to our parents, and should not be considered an endorsement of any organization, service or program. This page is still under construction as the district continues to pull together additional resources.
In the spring of 2010, the district hired National School Safety and Security Services to conduct a comprehensive district-wide school security assessment. The district entered into this agreement at the request of the Duncanville ISD Board of Trustees. This expert national safety team was asked to assist the district in identifying positive school safety strategies currently in place, and to make recommendations for strengthening the district's safety, security, and emergency preparedness efforts.
The Safety Assessment included 140 diverse individual interviews, site visits and walk-through evaluations of all district facilities, a community forum, and a formal review of various safety documents. In the final assessment report, National School Safety and Security Services identified 45 positive measures already in place within Duncanville ISD to promote school safety.
