BISD’s Advanced Academics Department Sponsoring Information Meetings


BISD’s Advanced Academics Department is sponsoring information meetings for eighth-, ninth-, and 10th-grade students and their parents at Birdville, Haltom and Richland high schools. Topics will include:

  • What is a pre-AP course?;
  • What is the difference/how similar are AP and Dual Credit courses?;
  • Changes to the college entrance exams; and
  • A panel of AP and Dual Credit teachers and students will discuss what life is really like for active students enrolled in these courses. Samples of work will also be displayed.

Eighth-grade students/parents should attend your feeder high school campus day; however, if needed, they may come to any presentation. The meetings are from 6–7 p.m. on the following dates:

  • RHS Nov. 18 (Auditorium)
  • HHS Dec. 1 (Omni Room)
  • BHS Dec. 15 (Cafeteria)
