  • Open Enrollment is a process through which in-district and out-of-district students may apply to a Birdville ISD campus other than the one they are zoned to attend based on their residential address. Applications are considered on a case-by-case basis and require approval by the campus principal and an administrator in the Student Services Department.

    "Our team of educators is deeply invested in seeing students excel and succeed academically and personally."    - Birdville I

    Birdville ISD is accepting Open Enrollment applications for in-district and out-of-district students for the upcoming school year. The following information is intended for, and will be implemented at, all Birdville ISD campuses.

    For the coming school year:

    • A currently enrolled prekindergarten student will be required to return to their home campus for their kindergarten school year.
    • In-district students currently in kindergarten through fifth grade may apply for Open Enrollment at any campus within Birdville ISD.
    • A student who is currently in the sixth grade and applying for Open Enrollment must declare a high school campus to attend for the ninth- through 12th-grade school years on the Open Enrollment application. The student may choose to either:
      • Remain in their current (Open Enrollment) feeder pattern; or
      • Return to their zoned high school campus.
    • Per Birdville ISD Board policy, exceptions are made if:
      • The student currently attends the campus; or
      • The parent is a Birdville ISD employee; or
      • The student has an older sibling who will attend the same campus during the initial Open Enrollment year; and
      • The student meets all eligibility criteria.
    • All grade levels are open to all BISD students at their zoned feeder pattern campus.
