Letter Jacket Fittings -  Anyone who thinks they are eligible for a letter jacket must come by the Band Hall and Pick up a letter Jacket packet. Please fill it out, and come to the school on Wednesday morning (September 23rd) during 1st -3rd periods with your completed packet and payment to be fitted for a letter jacket. How do I know if I earned a letter Jacket? Please see BISD's letter jacket policy listed below. 


A.   BISD LETTER JACKETS

Students are eligible to be fitted for an award jacket upon completion of one of the following criteria:

  • Audition and be selected to a High School  All-Region Band (does not include the Freshman Band)

  • Participate in four (4) UIL contests (winter guard state championship or WGI championship may be substituted for Color Guard. In years when the Winter Guard does not compete in NTCA or WGI, the director may approve eligible participation in another final performance of the winter season for letter jacket credit).

  • All enrolled senior band members who have not been awarded a letter jacket from another activity.
