  • NTI Day Photo

    Rain, sun, sleet, or snow - Burgin students are ready to go!

    What is a Non-Traditional School Day?

    A Non-Traditional School Day is a method of delivering instruction for ALL students on a day when school buildings are not accessible due to unforeseen circumstances (i.e. snow days). Teachers have the opportunity to maintain an online presence for content delivery or provide a hard copy of work for students without technology or network resources. The result is decreased loss of instructional time and an increased ability to continue learning content.

    Should the district elect to use a Non-Traditional Instruction Day, all media announcements will reflect that decision. NTI assignments will be sent home with students by their classroom teachers. All students will receive printed copies of their assignments to keep at home. Please contact the front office for more information.

    NTI Packets will go home with students on December 14th, 2017.

  • Test Scores Photo

    Burgin Test Scores Show Student Success and Growth

    Unbridled Learning test results were released this week, placing Burgin Independent Schools as one of the top districts in the state, with marked growth in middle and high school indices.

    The district's middle and high schools made exceptional growth, with the high school increasing their overall index from a 71 to a 79.1 and the middle school increasing their overall index score from 61.2 to 71.5. The overall District index remained a 75 for the second year in a row.

    Due to statewide accountability transitions, terminology for the year has shifted. Districts will soon be ranked on a five-star system of accountability to be rolled out in the 2018-19 school year. Burgin's scores from the 2016-17 school year have accelerated the district and placed it in the ranks of what would be labeled "Distinguished," the highest category for districts and schools.

    "One question we've always struggled with is what time we should get our little ones to bed. Go to bed too early, and they goof off, get hyper and never get to sleep. Go to bed too late, and we've got grumpy tired kids who can barely make it through the day" (

    One Wisconsin school has published a chart of suggested bedtimes, based on the age of the child. Check it out at the link below:
