January is School Board Recognition Month and Burton ISD celebrates its trustees for their dedication and commitment to the district and students. The theme of this year’s School Board Recognition Month is Forward, Together which highlights the collaboration among school district leadership, staff,  parents, and the community on behalf of students. Recognizing the efforts of our elected school board is so important because of all the hard work trustees put into making our district a success. We applaud the efforts of trustees in providing leadership and good governance so that Burton ISD can focus on educating the public schoolchildren in our care. Our school board is critical to the success of students and the future of Texas. Jeff Harmel - Board President, Misty Lucherk - Board Vice President, Donna Putnam - Board Secretary, Demetrius Colvin, Sr., David Warner, Sr., Dean Fuchs, and Brian Hinze. We are thankful for your service and appreciate all that you do for Burton ISD.

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!

 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!
