Welcome Military Parents
Being a part of the military can be challenging for parents and their families, particularly for school-age children. Military families sacrifice their personal comfort and experience tremendous upheaval when a military parent is called to serve our country. Children are especially vulnerable when separated from their parents due to deployments. School can be one place where stability and normal routine can provide an anchor for children during the challenges of military life.
Burkburnett ISD understands that the predictability of the classroom helps to cushion the impact of deployment that often includes changes in psychological equilibrium and disruption of individual behavior and coping skills. Our school district also understands those challenges and stands ready to assist military parents with the necessary resources they need.
