Superintendent's Message

The 2016-2017 School year is upon us and I am super excited about the upcoming year. I have no doubt it will be one of the best on record for Brackett ISD. As the district leader at Brackett ISD it is a pleasant and satisfying feeling knowing you are surrounded with a team of professionals that are the best in the State and the record of this district exemplifies that by the success of each and every student that attends BISD and takes that Tiger pride with them throughout their life in all they accomplish.

It is also comforting to be led by a team of trustees that serve to accomplish each and every goal attainable for the students of Brackett ISD. The best possible education for each and every child in an environment and facility that safety of our children ranks at the top of the priority list.

Whether you were born and raised here or you have moved here or even transferred your children into the Brackett ISD family, it will not take you long to realize that Brackett ISD is the best small school in the State of Texas. We have strong academics, CTE classes unmatched at any school our size, UIL academic and extra-curricular activities that are recognized around the State of Texas and a set of administrators, teachers and support staff that are unmatched anywhere.

On behalf of our leadership team and the Board of Trustees at Brackett ISD we welcome you to the 2016 – 2017 school year at the best 2A district in the State of Texas. A place where our student’s education and safety takes top priority.

News and Announcements


Jan. 6, 2107
AUSTIN – The 84th Legislature passed House Bill 2804, changing the Texas school accountability system so that every campus and district receives one of five ratings from A-F. The ratings will be issued for the first time in August 2018.

The law requires the Texas Education Agency to present a preliminary work-in-progress report noting potential grades by domain to be issued to the legislature by Jan. 1, 2017. That report, which was sent to legislative members last week, is now publicly available. Commissioner of Education Mike Morath issued the following statement regarding this report:

“It is important to note that the Met Standard/Improvement Required ratings issued in August 2016 and updated in November 2016 are the official academic accountability ratings for the 2015–16 school year. A similar process will be used for the 2016–17 school year.

The ratings in this report are for informational purposes to meet a legislative requirement and represent work-in-progress models that are likely to change before A–F ratings become effective in August 2018. No inferences about official district or campus performance in the 2015–16 school year should be drawn from these ratings, and these ratings should not be considered predictors of future district or campus performance ratings.”
