Updated Field Trip Form Announced

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.

Hello: Is Anyone There?

Will We Be Able To Reach You?

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.
