Next school year of BISD
Where has summer gone? It is hard to believe the 2014-15 school year is just around the corner. BISD staff have been busy all summer preparing for the return of students on Monday, August 25.
This summer, BISD’s Board of Trustees approved a new strategic plan for the district. This plan was developed by a Strategic Planning Team comprised of 36 individuals—one Board member, 14 administrators, three teachers, one paraprofessional, five parents, five community members and seven students.
As a result of the Planning Team’s work, the Board approved a strategic plan, which includes a new mission statement for Birdville ISD. The statement says,
“The mission of Birdville ISD is to ensure that all students position themselves to excel with integrity in an ever-changing global society through innovative and responsive learning environments.”
This is the mission and foundation for all we do. For the good of all our children, I hope the entire BISD community will come alongside the staff and Board of Trustees in this work.
In addition to the district’s new strategic plan, the Board is also preparing to call for a bond proposal to be placed on the November 4 ballot. This bond proposal will address the following:
• Safety & Security Upgrades;
• Science Lab Upgrades;
• Technology Upgrades;
• Renovations & Facilities Upgrades; and
• Rebuilding (Birdville Elementary, Academy at West Birdville [elementary] and North Richland Middle School).
I hope you will review the details of the new strategic plan and proposed bond program on the district’s website at birdvilleschools.net. Don’t forget that school begins Monday, August 25. Drive safely, and remember, don’t text and drive!
