Administrators of Duncanville Independent School District are appealing to former students who didn’t graduate to return. In particular, Duncanville ISD administrators are reaching out to high school seniors who ought to have graduated last year but didn’t.

Many students could not graduate last year due to the COVID-19 global pandemic that led to the total lockdown of the country. School administrators visited the homes of around twenty-five former students of Duncanville Independent School District. The district says it wants those students who were about to complete their high school careers with a diploma to come back and round up their coursework.

Duncanville ISD leaders said they understand the pandemic’s negative impact on school, work, and life for some of them.

“We want them to know that no matter what circumstances you’ve had in your life, there are people at Duncanville ISD who care about you,” said Pace High School Principal Tijuana Hudson. “And we are going to be on a mission to complete your high school diploma.”

District leaders also provided information on Pace High School’s programs. The school offers in-person instruction as well as an accelerated, online curriculum.
