The Bowling Green Independent School District accepts enrollment of non-resident students from surrounding districts and counties. The enrollment of new non-resident students may not exceed the school building capacity. Capacity per grade may be further limited by annual staffing of each school, to not exceed pupil: teacher ratios by grade level.
The Bowling Green Independent School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, religion, marital status, sex, or disability in enrollment, education programs, or activities set forth in Office of Civil Rights Law, Title VI, VII, Title IX, ADA and Section 504.
BGISD does not provide transportation outside of the district boundaries for non-resident students.
An annual tuition of $500 will be charged to each nonresident student to offset the local tax assessed to residents.
Students who become non-resident students mid-year due to a household move or change in parent/guardian employment status may continue enrollment in BGISD, but will become a non-resident, tuition student and charged prorated tuition based on the date of the student address change or end of employment and remaining school year.
