We miss you and hope you thoroughly enjoyed your summer break! This year the Duncanville ISD Counseling Department gathered together with a Hawaiian-themed school year kickoff! We learned about our new mission and vision from our new Director of Counseling, Ms. Shayla Pratt. We are so excited to welcome our students back to school, and we look forward to helping them get reacclimated to a safe school environment, and ensuring they have a successful school year!
Check out our new department mission and vision below, along with some pictures from our kickoff event:
