Celebrating Our Super-Heroes
At the January 11 school board meeting, NISD students showed their appreciation during School Board Recognition month by presenting the school board with an e-portfolio of projects ranging from videos to artwork.  The e-portfolio represented work from each campus in Northwest ISD.  Each school board member is committed to the work they do for children, and our district values their dedication and support.  Thank you NISD Super-Heroes for Education!

Thank you, NISD Board of Trustees!

Introducing 1:World Resource for Families
NISD has created the 1:World website in an effort to provide student device information, answers to frequently asked questions, acceptable use guidelines, educational trends, e-portfolio information and other resources related to technology. Since 2009, NISD has been a 1:1 school district, offering a school-issued device to secondary students.  This year, all middle and high school students have access to a school-issued device or can bring their own device.  To view the 1:World website, go to http://1toworld.nisdtx.org/.  The 1:World logo was created by the students in the Academy of Business Management and Entrepreneurship at Eaton High School.

Bus Stop Changes Beginning January 19
Northwest ISD, in partnership with Durham Transportation, strives to provide services to our students that are safe, timely, and effective.  In order to create more safe and efficient bus routes, Durham Transportation will be eliminating some bus stops on all bus routes.  A letter was mailed on Monday, January 11 to inform families of these changes. 

The district has adopted the following guidelines for walk distances (from home to bus stop location) for each age group of students: 

High School -  4/10 of a mile
Middle School - 3/10 of a mile
Elementary School - 2/10 of a mile 

These changes will go into effect beginning Tuesday, January 19.  
This change will cut the amount of time your child is spending on the bus each week up to two hours or more, depending on the route.  Safety is the number one priority in making this adjustment.  Reducing the stops may require students to walk slightly further than their normal bus stop location, depending on the route; however, bus stops will have an increase in the number of students at a stop, providing a safer wait for transportation.     

NISD encourages you to talk with your children about school bus safety.  Use the following tips:
  • Walk with your child to the bus stop, and wait with them until the bus arrives.
  • Make sure your child is waiting at a safe distance away from the curb when the bus arrives.
  • Instruct your child to look left, right, and left again if they need to cross the street upon exiting the bus.
  • Pay attention to drivers who may not be following the speed limits in school zones or near bus stops.
For more information, please contact Durham Transportation at 940-242-3900.

As a service to NISD students, parents, and community members, the district provides the Community Folder for non-school groups or organizations to post information that may be of interest or benefit students and families.  If you would like to post information to the site, click here for more information.  To view approved flyers, click here.
