Panther Chats - Parent Partnership: Be a Part of the Conversation

Beginning the week of January 22, DHS Collegiate Academy will provide biweekly parent and student updates, via a video newsletter on Tuesdays.

Parents will then have the opportunity to join the Panther Chats biweekly on Thursdays at 11:00am and/ or 6:00pm to ask questions and serve as thought partners to learn from each other and exchange ideas about student learning and school improvements. The chats are two way dialogue whereby the collegiate family listens learns, solves problems, and shares information with each other.

Don't forget to sign in after viewing the parent and student updates by utilizing the QR code at the end of the videos.

TSI Bootcamp

Collegiate Academy strives to ensure all scholars are successful in their academics. To ensure all scholars are successful on the TSI Reading, Writing, and Math we have scheduled boot camps for scholars to gain strategies for the assessment. There are two steps scholars need to complete.

Step One

Complete the TSIA preparation in Edgenuity for the subject areas they are not met.

Step Two

Report to TSI Bootcamp as scheduled by the campus. We are currently scheduling 10th graders weekly. Scholars must attend the 3 day session (Monday - Wednesday from 3:05 to 4:05) in order to test on Thursday.

Boot camp attendance is mandatory.

Please contact us at lsimon@duncanvilleisd.org if you have any questions.
