Shortly after learning that 100% of Duncanville ISD schools received the highest rating possible from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) – Met Standard -, more good academic news arrived this week. The TEA announced Friday that six Duncanville ISD schools received 18 distinctions for the 2015-2016 school year.
