BRISD Earns Texas Virtual School Network Grant
The Texas Education Agency has awarded Texas Virtual School Network (TXVSN) grants to Texas public rural schools and open-enrollment charters. Blue Ridge ISD applied for a grant and was chosen to receive $24,200.
The Texas Virtual School Network Online Schools (TxVSN OLS) program provides instruction to eligible Texas public school students in grades 3-12. With the use of grant money, BRISD will be able to offer TxVSN online classes through accredited public school districts to students in need of special courses that cannot be offered on campus because of schedule conflicts or other special circumstances.
We are excited to have this option available for our students to receive quality instruction virtually through TxVSN.

Free/Reduced Priced School Meal Applications
Families who wish to apply for free or reduced priced meals need to complete a new income application every school year. The free/reduced price eligibility of our returning students rolled over to this new school year for the first 30 DAYS. However, last school year's Free/Reduced Priced School Meal Applications are set to expire October 4, 2017. Student who currently receive free or reduced meals but whose family has not yet submitted a new application for the 2017-2018 school year or who have not yet received an eligibility letter from the Food Service Department will be changed to FULL PAY STATUS on October 4, 2017. Households will be responsible for any cost that occurs on the student's account until a new application for the 2017-2018 school year is submitted and processed.
If you have not already completed a 2017-2018 Free/Reduced application, you can pick up one at any school office or cafeteria. Once completed, please return the application for processing.
