BISD Launches COVID Central Website

COVIDCentral

To better organize COVID-19 information and resources for parents and staff, BISD created the “COVID Central” website. On COVID Central you will find the COVID dashboard and other important COVID-19 related information resources.   

The link to COVID Central can be found on the front of the District and campus websites, as well as on  the BISD mobile app, the QR code posted on entrances to each District facility, or at birdvilleschools.net/covidcentral. As updates become available, they will be posted on COVID Central.

BCTAL Blooms is excited to once again offer our Arrangement of the Month Club!

BCTAL Blooms

Leading the charge is an extraordinary group of Advanced Floral and Practicum students, who have made it their mission to make this even better than before!

These arrangements will be available for members to pick up from the BCTAL campus on a pre-scheduled day each month, in a drive-through style manner. Each of the three types of memberships provides members one top-quality floral arrangement per month, for the average price of $30 each, which is an incredible deal for what our students have planned for you!

2021–22 BISD ISD COVID-19 Dashboard

Covid Dashboard

With the return of students to face-to-face instruction, BISD has created a dashboard (“the Dashboard”) to provide BISD families and staff with information about new active COVID-19 cases in the District. An “active case” is defined as an individual who has been in a BISD school and test-confirmed to have COVID-19. Individuals who test positive are excluded from participation in any in-person/on-campus activity until the campus nurse verifies that the individual meets the return criteria set by state and local health authorities. 

This data will be updated each Friday afternoon.  Click to view the Dashboard

Board Approves COVID-19 Leave for 2021–22 School Year

At the Board’s regular monthly meeting, the board of trustees approved a resolution authorizing the District to provide COVID-19 leave until January 31, 2022.


The Resolution provides 10 days of COVID-19 leave for fully vaccinated employees only to use with the following conditions:

  • The fully vaccinated employee tests positive for COVID-19.
  • The fully vaccinated employee’s minor child tests positive for COVID-19 and must be cared for by the employee because the minor child is prohibited from attending their childcare or school.
  • Documentation for the employee vaccination and proof of a COVID-19 positive test will be required.
  • This Resolution is effective from July 1, 2021, through January 31, 2022. Any employees with these conditions in July or August 2021 may qualify for these additional days.
  • Administration may bring an extension back to the Board at the January 2022 meeting if warranted.
  • The vaccination requirement may be excused if an employee’s treating physician advises that the employee should not receive the vaccine due to an existing medical condition.
