2021 Northwest ISD Legislative Priorities

Northwest ISD regularly advocates for public education to elected state officials. The NISD Board of Trustees approved the district's legislative priorities in January 2020, with a review in December 2020, that best represent the interest of the district, its students, and families.

The priorities focus on five key areas: fast growth, school finance, accountability and assessment, area transportation needs, and safety and security. These areas were chosen based on important issues affecting Northwest ISD as well as state education in general.

Fast Growth 

Provide considerations, accommodations, and relief for fast-growth school districts.

School Finance

Create an adequate and equitable system with local discretion that accommodates fast growth and ensures the community’s needs are met.

Accountability & Assessment

Establish a system that looks beyond the STAAR exam and measures what the community prioritizes, and oppose A-F ratings.

North Texas & NISD Growing Transportation Needs

Support efforts and funding to address the expansion and improvement of transportation infrastructure in response to the rapid growth of the North Texas area.

School Safety & Security

Support funding student and school safety initiatives and flexibility in how funds are used to meet the needs of the community.
