BISD NEWS 

BISD Race, Equity & Identity Policy Community Survey

BISD is deeply committed to ensuring that children of every race, national origin, language, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, socioeconomic status, and ability, reach their full potential. We also have a particular responsibility to address racism. As a school district, that includes ensuring that we proactively eliminate any disparities in educational outcomes for students of all races.

We are committed to the values outlined in the Draft BISD Policy: Race, Equity & Identity. The purpose of this survey is to receive community input on what we may have missed or overlooked when drafting the policy.

We value your feedback. Please take a moment to fill out this survey with thoughtful, constructive comments.
The survey closes on Wednesday, March 17, 2021.
BISD Policy: Race, Equity & Identity
Student Covid Test Instructions
Staff Covid Test Instructions

As of March 1, all BISD campuses will have students present during school hours.  

As a reminder, BISD campuses are closed to the public during school hours due to safety reasons. 
The one exception is the following scenario at BHS:
BISD students through 8th grade may use the BHS campus for a safe crossing to their schools. However, students must:

- have masks up at all times
- walk bikes if it is during BHS passing time
- listen to adult directions
- watch out for construction vehicles 

If students are traveling with adults, we ask that they use the sidewalks and go around the campus on High School Road and Madison.
