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

Some thoughts on public education:

  • Parental rights and responsibilities are essential for a strong public education system.

  • Schools have the greatest potential to succeed when district leadership and locally elected school boards work together with parents and the community to improve student outcomes.

  • Public school classrooms are the best places for most Texas school-age children to learn, grow, and become responsible citizens. 

  • The goal of equitable educational opportunities that lead to positive student outcomes — ensuring every student can reach their full potential — can be attained if the appropriate resources are provided to frontline educators and public schools. 

  • Local school governance — a longstanding tradition here in Texas — is the best approach to ensuring publicly funded schools are responsive to parents and community members.

  • The Texas State Board of Education’s process for approving curriculum must continue to include community input-to ensure accountability to voters and parents. 

  • Progress has been made in ensuring schools are welcoming and safe environments for all students.    

  • Removing barriers to opportunities in Texas public schools should be a priority!   

We welcome you to visit the 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 very proud to be a BURTON PANTHER! 

Lots of great things going on this semester. 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. We are prepared to Dream Big, Sparkle More, and Shine Bright as the Future is Now for the Burton Panthers in 2022!!! Have a blessed week and GO BIG RED!
