Bowie ISD offers career and technical education programs in Agriculture, Arts, A/V Technology, and Communication; Business Management and Administration; Finance, Health Science, Human Services; Information Technology; and Marketing, Sales, and Services.

It is the policy of Bowie ISD not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, handicap, or age in its employment practices as required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. Bowie ISD will take steps to ensure that a lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in all educational and vocational programs.
In accordance with Title IX, the district does not and is required not to discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs or activities. The requirement not to discriminate extends to admission and employment.
