What a great time to be a Burton Panther!!!                    

Welcome to the Burton Independent School District weekly update. Bond Project information will be shared as it pertains to the planning and construction of our new facilities.

According to Rob Ogletree, Job Superintendent with DSA Construction Management, Circle H has brought in more equipment to have available for work crews to move the project along. They have initiated the final cut to subgrade starting on the Northeast end, working in a Southwest direction. The goal is to have 75% of the football field and track area completed so that chemical injections can begin. Soil Solutions of Texas is prepared to mobilize the chemical injection process across the property. Additional time-lines for the next phases of sub-contractors are expected within the next few days.

There are key strengths in Texas education worth celebrating, but there are also challenges. We must join together to overcome these challenges for every Texas child to ensure our state is a national leader in preparing students for postsecondary success. The work is not easy, but Burton ISD is blessed to have dedicated teachers who put the needs of students first. Together, we will continue to help students maximize their potential, so they graduate prepared for lives of purpose and productivity.

Please feel free to come visit Burton Independent School District and thank you in advance for taking time to find out more about our schools, our professional staff, our exemplary students, and our excellent academic programs. Burton Schools are a perfect place to get an education that will prepare your child for a bright future. 

There is a tremendous amount of community support that goes into the success of our programs in Burton ISD. We appreciate everyone who helps make a positive impact on our schools. All of us working cooperatively make Burton ISD better together. So proud to be a BURTON PANTHER! 

Lots of great things going on this school year. Follow all of our activities on the Burton ISD website @, check out the Burton ISD app, and keep up with the latest happenings on the Burton ISD Facebook page and other social media venues. 

The pride of the Burton Panthers is embedded in all of us whether we are a student, an alumni, a community member, a staff member and employee, a parent, board member and/or a proud supporter and in many cases all of the above. We love our Panthers and like to think that the culture we are providing in educating our students is a reason why parents want their children to attend Burton ISD. We value our school district and always put students first. For the 2022-2023 school year,  Learning is Our Superpower as we are Building Our Future!!! Have a blessed day! GO BIG RED!!!
