BISD received a federal grant for our afterschool program. The program is now called Texas ACE and is funded by a grant from the US Department of Education’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers program.
Texas ACE empowers students to realize their potential and change the world!

Texas ACE provides thousands of students across the state with: 

  • Interactive, hands-on learning disguised as fun and aligned to the school curriculum 
  • Enrichment activities such as legos, robotics, coding, piano, ukulele, baby-sitter training, CPR training, art, and handcrafts.
  • Homework help, study strategies, time management, and other targeted, needs-based academic assistance as well as high impact tutoring in math and reading. 

The afterschool program is for 110 students grades K-8. A parent of guardian must pick up the student(s) by 6:15 PM. Students will eat dinner at the end of the school day and get a snack to take home each evening. First priority is for students who qualify for Accelerated Learning and their siblings.
