Superintendent's Message

Bowie I.S.D. Students, Parents, and Community Members:

Welcome to the Bowie I.S.D. website. It is our mission to promote the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development of each student. We strive to create a flourishing environment and to provide an educational experience that empowers all students to be successful in an ever-changing world. Bowie I.S.D. welcomes and encourages parental and community involvement in order to reach the common goal of ensuring success for all children.

The 2014-2015 school year was very successful. Bowie I.S.D. and all individual campuses achieved the Texas Education Agency’s highest rating of “Met Standard.” Bowie High School received three “Distinction Designations” from the Texas Education Agency in the areas of “Academic Achievement in Reading/ELA,” Academic Achievement in Mathematics,” and “Top 25% in Student Progress.” Our students exceeded state and regional averages on the majority of the state standardized tests at all grade levels, and they showed outstanding improvement in many areas.
Members the graduating class of 2015 were awarded close to $1 million in scholarships to pursue educational opportunities after high school. Bowie I.S.D. students excelled in academics, band, athletics, fine arts, agricultural science, and numerous other extracurricular and co-curricular activities throughout the past year.

Our community once again showed outstanding support by contributing time, money, and other resources to the various booster clubs, PTO’s, student groups, etc. that provided additional support to our students, staff, and school district.

In conclusion, I feel very blessed to be a part of our community and school district. We have outstanding students, a wonderful staff, and an amazing community that supports us along the way. I am looking forward to the opportunities and challenges that are ahead of us as we work together to have a positive impact on our community and the lives of our students.

Steven Monkres, Superintendent
