2021 Northwest ISD Legislative Priorities

Northwest ISD regularly advocates for public education to elected state officials. In advance of the 2021 Texas Legislative Session, the NISD Board of Trustees approved the district's legislative priorities in January 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. To see the background of each priority area, click here.
