UIL Excellence continued this past week, and the BRHS UIL Academic Team finished as the District Runner Up. We are so proud of our kids and coaches for all of their hard work in reaching their best performance in more than a decade. For 2017-2018, our goal for every campus team to win 1st or 2nd at the district meet, and the High School Academic Team accomplished just that with a record high point total of 376 points.
The following students advanced to the Regional Tournament:

Growth Impacts Facilities
|STAAR testing begins during the week of April 9.|
Students and teachers are working hard.
- Currently, we have enough classrooms for instruction, but with every increase of 20 students, it will require the district to hire an additional teacher which will require another classroom.
- Moving from 2A to 3A in athletics will require us to have more teams in all sports, and the district will need to upgrade the Elementary Gym to allow for competitive games.
- Increases to our FFA program enrollment will require the district to provide more barn facilities to house animal projects.
- The elementary school facility can make allowances for approximately 3-4 additional teachers.
- The middle school facility can make allowances for approximately 1-2 additional teachers.
- The high school facility can make allowances for approximately 2-3 additional teachers.
