  • Congratulations to Bob Houston and his rocket science students!

    So excited to have read this letter sent to our own Bob Houston!!

    Congratulations to you and your students for reaching your respective goals last year! We are thrilled that we have 10 banners to present! Your students are blessed to have you as their teachers and we are blessed that you are a part of SystemsGo. We appreciate your dedication and hard work!


    Goddard Teachers – you guys are amazing!! The level of commitment and perseverance from you AND your students is beyond measure! The HOURS above and beyond the school day/year with the project extending into the summer and launches at the end of June – Our hats are off you to you!!

    It is going to be a busy fall, so we would like to schedule banner presentations with all of you. Please look at your schedules and give us a couple of dates that would be good. We will then look at our schedules, and get a date on the calendar and let you know. Once the date is set, Phil will send out a press release for you to submit to your local papers. I really encourage you to do this – it is awesome to see positive things in the news about our schools and teenagers – they work hard and it should show!

    BISD Board Approves STEM Certification Plan


    Trustees also voted to move forward with having North Richland Middle School designated as a certified Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) campus. In order to qualify as a STEM-certified campus, all of the math and science teachers will be immersed in a year-long training experience that assists them in understanding and aligning their practices to the research which defines quality STEM instruction. Training for staff includes face-to-face and online sessions, as well as onsite coaching visits by STEMscope consultants.

    Dr. Elizabeth A. Clark, Associate Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, said, “Birdville ISD wants to embrace, implement and support innovative approaches that expand the opportunities for students and staff to personalize and enrich learning that goes beyond what the state uses in accountability.”
