On Dec. 3, the Transportation and Technology departments are happy to announce the launch of an enhanced online BISD field trip request form. These departments worked hand-in-hand with a few campus test sites to bring some exciting advancements to the District’s form. These changes will assist our staff by providing emailed confirmations pertaining to field trip requests. Notifications will be sent to the originators and/or campus coordinators.
The District believes this upgrade will be a benefit to all users. If you have any suggestions to streamline the field trip process, please email Sheri Nguyen.

If needed during winter weather, Birdville ISD calls staff to inform them of school closings and delays. Please log in and verify the primary phone number listed in Munis Self Service. For winter weather calls, the system will only call one number, so please make sure the appropriate number is listed in Munis. This is also a good time to confirm your email and mobile/cell number. BISD uses each of these as part of its communications with staff.

Teachers must transition web files off Schoolwires websites Files/Folders by July 31. This transition is very important to ensure that all staff comply with ADA online content guidelines. Once finished moving all your content to alternative location (U: drive or Google Drive), you will need to notify Michelle DoPorto, District Webmaster, by completing the following Google Form: https://goo.gl/forms/jjtFmK6p2DQiQ8yF2.
Reminder: Your campus website is to house ONLY your overview page. The overview page must include a recent professional appearing photo, name, title, BISD email, phone, conference time, class schedule and tutorial times for upcoming year. This is referred to as the simple “business card model” overview page. Other resources like PDFs, videos, links, etc. are to be stored on a secure platform such as Canvas, Google Classroom, Google Docs, REMIND or similar app and/or a weekly email newsletter. This will alleviate the District’s liability of non-ADA compliant content uploaded onto the websites viewable by the public.
