  • Haltom High School Freshmen Career Sessions


    The BISD Center of Technology and Advanced Learning recently welcomed a group of 9th grade students from Haltom High School to enjoy a few hours of career "touring"; where they attended 5 separate sessions which gave them some resources and answered questions that they may have regarding their possible career choices.  Thank you to all 9th grade students who attended and to the staff members who accompanied them. Also, a big thank you to our student representatives from other grades and campuses who helped with the sessions.  Good Luck to all of you in your quest for a successful future!!!

  • BISD College and Career Night


    BISD College and Career Night 2017 {click link to view photos}


    Birdville ISD hosted a College and Career Night for students, parents and community members. Approximately 1500 people were in attendance, partaking in informational sessions and going from one table to the next asking questions and gathering brochures/information from more than 100 colleges, universities, technical schools and branches of the U.S. Military.

    Thank you to the CTE staff, Andrea Anderson, and DeeDee Bocanegra for coordinating the event and to Martin Pham & Tarrant County College representatives for their presentations.  We also appreciate Debra Yocum, Donna Bagley, Eva Trevino, Vanessa Matschulat, Cindy Larson, Stephanie Stevenson, Debbie Conaway, Jacqueline Travis, Terri Ramsey and Pam Miller, high school counselors for their guidance to students throughout the evening.

    A special thanks to Carol Adcock, principal of the Birdville Center of Technology and Advanced Learning for opening up the building to the community and Chef Josh Gentry, Steve Wesley and Culinary Arts students for catering the event. We truly appreciate Jamal Holman, BCTAL head custodian and his staff for setting up and breaking down tables and chairs, we couldn’t have done it without them.

    We were so proud of Captain Warren Harris and our professional JROTC cadets/leaders from the high schools for arriving early, helping the recruiters set up, welcoming guests and staying after the event to support the custodial staff.

    Thank you all for your wonderful contributions, diligence and hard work and for helping make this year’s College and Career Night a success!

    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!
