Burton ISD has called for a School Board Election on Saturday, May 6, 2017 with three at-large positions on the ballot. Incumbents are Felton Cox, Jeff Harmel, and Misty Lucherk. At this time, no one has filed for a place on the ballot.
A message from Crysta Smith, a sixth grader at Burton Elementary School. Our character trait for February is Respect. We spend time everyday learning about Respect and how to be respectful to our teachers and classmates. We are learning to use good manners and to be considerate of the feelings of others. After this month, we are challenged to continue being respectful.
Katherine Hewett, 9th grader @ Burton High School says…Burton ISD-one of the finest in the State of Texas. Parent and community support, hardworking and dedicated staff, pride and excellence. Please take time to find out more about our schools and programs @ www.burtonisd.net. BISD is a wonderful place to educate a child as we are Reaching for the Stars. Go Panthers!!!
Have a great week! GO RED!!!

Happy Monday morning from Burton Independent School District-January 16, 2017
Hi! My name is Gracie Tuck. I am a 5th grader at Burton Elementary School. Our school has a holiday today to observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Today we are paying tribute to Dr. King’s principles, perhaps best known by his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
Americans are encouraged to observe this day as not just a day off work but also a “Day of Service” to others with civic, community, and service projects. What can you do today to be of service to others?
We recognize Martin Luther King, Jr. as the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement and his successful protest against racial discrimination in federal and state law.
Congratulations to the Burton High School, Junior High School, and Elementary Winners in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo School Art Contest held a week ago Saturday at Round Top-Carmine Elementary School. The winners advance to the HLSR for exhibit in the Hayloft Art Gallery. Great job artists!
