Instructional Choice

Beginning January 25th, all Burleson ISD parents who want to change from on-campus instruction to virtual instruction or from virtual instruction to on-campus instruction for the 5th six weeks can log in to Family Access and complete the “2020 - 21 Instructional Choice for 5th Six Weeks” form. Please complete this form by January 31st for each student who you wish to switch.

CLICK HERE TO GO TO FAMILY ACCESS

If you do not know your Family Access Login/Password, you can click on the “Forgot your Login/Password?” link to have this information emailed to you. For additional help, please email ONLINEFORMS@BISDMAIL.NET for assistance.


Our goal is to maintain consistency for students in the classroom as much as possible; however, due to the nature of this school year, depending on the number of student's making a change to instructional choice, we may have to change a student's teacher to balance the numbers in the classroom.

Vision and Hearing Screening

Each year, the state of Texas requires students to complete a vision and hearing screening and a spinal screening for age-appropriate individuals.

Some virtual learning students have not been screened this school year. If you would like to schedule an appointment to have your student screened by Nurse Benson, please contact her at kristin.benson@bisdmail.net, or call 817-245-3800.


Valentine's Day Cards

Please be sure your child brings his/her Valentine's Day cards to school by Friday, February 5th. You should have received details from your child's teacher.

Gifted and Talented

Reminder: The annual window for Gifted and Talented (GT) referrals is open (January 1 - 31) for students currently in grades 2-12. GT services are provided for identified students in grades 3-12. Please see this video for a brief overview of the referral process (instructions for adjusting the language of the captions in YouTube). This link will take you to the BISD Gifted and Talented Education web page, and these links (English | Spanish) will take you to the referral forms. If you have any questions, please contact Kerri Owens at kowens@bisdmail.net.

Water Bottles

Reminder: The water fountains are only being used to fill-up water bottles during the school day. For safety reasons, students are not allowed to drink from the water fountains. Please make sure your child brings a refillable water bottle each day!
