January 2015 Notes from Dr. Darrell G. Brown

Happy New Year!


I am excited about all 2015 has to offer Birdville ISD. With the passage of the bond referendum in November 2014, there will be a lot of work taking place across the District in the next 36-48 months. The rebuilding of The Academy at West Birdville Elementary, Birdville Elementary and North Richland Middle School, updating outdated classroom technology and secondary science labs, renovating campuses and adding additional safety measures will require a great deal of coordination. Staff members are in the process of developing a master schedule to assist the District in making certain each component of the voter-approved bond is completed as committed to.
