Northwest ISD middle school athletic fields will open for public use beginning Saturday, April 17.

District leaders put together the plan to open track and field facilities following community feedback and presented it to the Board of Trustees on April 12.

Middle school tennis courts are currently open to the public, so opening the track and fields at NISD middle schools made the most sense, Tim McClure, assistant superintendent for facilities, told trustees. 

Officials also felt that middle school fields would provide the easiest access to community members as campuses are spread out across the district.

The track and field facilities will be available for use outside of school hours during daylight only. No lights will be turned on to minimize costs. Northwest ISD usage takes priority over community use. No animals, golf practice, motorized vehicles, bicycles or skateboards are allowed. 

Organized team play and practice is allowed with prior NISD authorization via a rental or lease agreement.

Signs will be posted at each facility outlining the community use guidelines.
