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.

Still accepting Requests for Proposals for the bond project until Thursday, November 3rd by 2:00 p.m. A Pre-Bid Meeting and additional site visit is scheduled for Thursday, October 20th @ 2:00 p.m. in the Burton ISD Auditorium located @ 917 North Main Street.

Recently it was Digital Equity Week which at its core is about providing everyone the tools to fully participate online regardless of age, race, income, location or ability status. There are four components to achieving digital equity: internet, devices, online content and digital skills. Burton ISD is proud to implement a technology infrastructure that will move our students into a competitive digital world. 

In the past two years, district priorities and shifts in PK-12 education has definitely had an impact on our students, their families, and the communities we live in. We have weathered changes and challenges to learn insights that will provide a better support system for the whole child. Hopefully, through organizational excellence and efficiency the learning experiences of Burton ISD students will fit into a modernized component of the global workforce.  

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 very 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. We are prepared for the 2022-2023 school year where Learning is Our Superpower as we are Building Our Future!!! Have a blessed day! GO BIG RED!
