facilities advisory committee

The Burleson community is thriving and growing, and Burleson ISD must keep pace in order to meet the educational needs for students. The district’s commitment to quality education demands that we take a continuous and serious look at our facilities and programs.

The Burleson ISD Facilities Advisory Committee was tasked with helping the district prepare for adequate and sustainable facilities and programs, empowering our students to receive a quality education.

Along with professional, neutral facilitators and experts, committee members reviewed financial data, facilities, demographics, needs for new construction and renovations, technology gaps and more, to best determine how the district manages growth.
