Help Needed!

Northwest Independent School District leaders have contracted with an external evaluation team from Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) to complete a Curriculum Audit. The team will be on site the week of April 30-May 3, 2018 and will be visiting campuses during that time as well as conducting interviews. However, the team will not have the opportunity to speak with everyone in the district. We would like to use the following survey to gather input from as many people as possible. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey so your opinion can be represented. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3K2RXM6

All answers will remain anonymous and survey information will only be reported in aggregate. Please complete this survey by April 26, 2018. Thank you very much for your assistance. Your input will provide valuable information for the district.

Registration for 2018-19 is OPEN

Help us gauge student enrollment and teacher staffing by registering your child for the 2018-19 school year.


If your family will be relocating over the summer, please call the front office at 817-215-0800 so that we can get your child’s records transferred to the new school.
