In the Brownsville Independent School District (BISD), students can attend their neighborhood schools or, in special circumstances only, transfer to other district schools. Gifted education services are available. The district has alternative schools for at-risk students.
Through the Public Education Grant Program (PEG), students who are enrolled in schools that have been rated as low-performing by the Texas Education Agency in any of the last three years, or in which more than half of the students failed the TAAS/TAKS for two of any three consecutive years, may transfer to another school or another district of their choice.
Under the federal No Child Left Behind law, students attending a Title I school designated as "in need of improvement" have the right to attend a higher-performing school in the district.
