• What is Right Turn Discipline Center?

    The Right Turn Discipline Center (RTDC) is a behavior modification program designed to serve students who have been removed from their home campus and assigned to alternative placement for violating the BISD Code of Conduct or students in the BISD who have been charged with other offenses in the community that warrant an assignment. The RTDC program includes the following components:

    • Behavior Management
    • Academics
    • Life Skills

    All students on the Right Turn campus follow the same general guidelines.

    Information For Parents

    Once your child has been assigned to RTDC:
    Parent and student must attend an Intake Meeting.  

    It is the responsibility of the parent to call 817-245-0500 and schedule the Intake meeting.                                                                                             

    • Attend the Intake Meeting with your child.
      • Meetings last about an hour.
      • Students must be in the dress code to start RTDC.
      • Meetings are Monday – Friday at 8:30 a.m.
