Spanning 40 miles of the DFW Metroplex, Birdville Independent School District is the 4th largest school district in Tarrant County, Texas. It is one of two districts that serves the city of Richland Hills. It also serves parts of North Richland Hills, Colleyville, Fort Worth, Haltom City, Hurst, and Watauga. In 2015, the Texas Education Agency gave Birdville ISD and all of its campuses a “Met Standard” rating, which is the highest rating available in the state’s accountability system. In order to receive such high ratings, school districts are required to meet three out of four “indexes”. These indexes include Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps, and Post-secondary Readiness. Birdville ISD met all four indexes.
Twenty-four campuses in the district received at least one additional distinction and four schools received the maximum amount. In total, 64 distinctions were awarded to individual schools throughout BISD. That same year, the district’s test scores exceeded the state average in all subjects.
