NBISD has collected feedback from parents and found that the major themes from the feedback were centered around equity, academic and extracurricular opportunities and transfer exceptions. FAQs have been posted on our website. The NBISD admin team will continue to take and answer questions emailed to email@example.com.
Sibling Transfer Exception will esure families are not split between two high schools. After thinking deeply about the implications, create conditions where students can provide, making it difficult to make a legacy of traditions. Because of these reasons, NBISD will not be allowing transfers reasons outside of the Sibling Transfer Exception.
“Speaking to navigating change, us as a community, we have a job now as a community to educate our kids by showing them positively how to navigate change,” said Trustee Morgan Renaud. “By being excited and wrapping around our Unicorns and our Dragons and encouraging that, because that’s going to be the thing that we need to do as a community to show them not only do you guys have this, but we have this, and we can run with it and show them, now it’s your turn, go make us champions again!”
