ASPIRE (After School Program Inspiring and Reinforcing Education)

  • Dear Families,
    In January 2021, Birdville ISD applied for the Cycle 11 Grant (administered by the Texas Education Agency and funded federally through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant (21st CCLC Grant)) which funds the ASPIRE program on your student’s campus. BISD was not chosen to receive the competitive 21st CCLC Grant.
    Therefore, beginning with the 2021–22 school year, we are not able to offer the ASPIRE before- and after-school program (as we have in years past) at the schools listed below:
    • Jack C. Binion Elementary
    • Birdville Elementary
    • Major Cheney Hills Elementary
    • W.T. Francisco Elementary
    • Grace E. Hardeman Elementary
    • John D. Spicer Elementary
    • The Academy at C.F. Thomas Elementary
    • Watauga Elementary
    • West Birdville Elementary
    The District is in the process of planning after-school tutoring sessions to replace the ASPIRE after-school program. Parents will be notified regarding the tutoring program prior to school starting.
    If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Miller, Director of Intervention Services, at             
    The ASPIRE program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.
    ASPIRE is available at 10 locations:
    • 4 Elementary
    • 5 Middle
    • 1 High School
