Bulldog News

The Broaddus ISD Administration team have been given strict guidelines on the types of Graduation Ceremonies that we can give our students. Please see the links below for these guidelines. Our graduation plan is attached. Given the guidelines, we worked with Senior Sponsors and class representatives to configure a ceremony that will honor the graduates while following the mandated rules from TEA. This is not the type of graduation that we wanted to provide our Bulldog Graduates and this was a hard decision. Please know that we have the best interest of our students and the safety of our community in mind. If you have any questions, please contact the Campus Principals or the Superintendent.
