School Board Recognition Month
January is School Board Recognition Month and Brock ISD is joining other districts across the state to thank these community volunteers for their commitment and contributions to our public schools.
School board members serve countless hours working to make public education the best it can be for every child. In a climate of change and challenge, they develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues that affect the entire community and the lives of individual students.
Preparing today’s students to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow is a tremendous task. As elected officials, school board members are the voice of their communities, serving first and foremost in the best interest of our schoolchildren.
We proudly salute these education advocates as they provide vision and leadership for student achievement, academic programs, district funding, and school facilities. Their service ensures that decisions about local public schools are made by those most familiar with the needs of our community’s children and families. These dedicated individuals deserve recognition and thanks for their unfailing commitment to the continuing success of our students now and in the future.
Great leadership always begins with a willing heart, a positive attitude, and a desire to make a difference. Please join us as we applaud these local leaders for helping our kids soar to success.

Inclement Weather Procdures
The safety and security of the Brock ISD students and staff is the district’s No. 1 priority, and we will always respond first to the immediate emergency. After ensuring the safety of our students, our next priority will be communicating with parents and guardians.
Severe Weather Procedure
Brock ISD officials and campuses regularly monitor storms in the area, the National Weather Service, and local TV and radio stations for any potential alerts or risks. Brock ISD officials receive regular updates and alerts from the Parker and Tarrant County Office of Emergency Management (OEM), and the National Weather Service.
In the event severe weather is approaching during the school day, the district will account for students and staff safety and then communicate updates to parents. The district requests parents to not come to school buildings in the middle of a storm to pick up their children. Please allow school officials to effectively respond during a weather emergency and follow Brock ISD's communication outlets for updates and announcements (Facebook, Twitter, and e-notes communication).
Inclement Weather Procedures
Brock ISD monitors the National Weather Service and local meteorologist forecasts before making decisions to close or delay school. Officials attempt to provide details about school closings to staff, students and parents before 5:30 a.m.
Factors considered before making a weather-related decision about school include:
Brock ISD will send alerts and updates via multiple communications tools. The district will post to Facebook, Twitter, the district's website and send communication via e-notes to keep parents, students and staff informed of weather-related alerts.

Brock Students Participate in the Cowtown BEST Robotics Competition
The 2018 Brock Robotics team BETA (Brock Engineering and Technology Association), competed on October 27th in the Cowtown BEST local hub competition of the BEST Robotics 2018 game, Current Events. The 19-member team, comprised of both Junior High and High school students, worked diligently for 6-weeks to design, build and test their robot, in addition to creating a business model focused on reducing pollution in our oceans. BETA’s work included research, extensive documentation, booth display and give-aways, and a 10-minute marketing presentation. The team earned good reviews of their notebook and presentation. During the robot competition, BETA placed 9th overall in qualifying rounds and advanced to the semifinal wild-card round. All of the team members and coaches wish to thank the schools and community for their support. Continue to support Brock Robotics by liking our Facebook page www.facebook.com/
