Backpack Requirements

Student Backpacks

All students in grades pre-K through 12 must use a clear backpack. Beginning with the start of the 2023-2024 school year, the district will no longer allow mesh backpacks. This revision to the backpack guidelines further enhances the safety and security of all students and staff while at school. 

In addition, rolling backpacks are not permitted on Castleberry ISD campuses. Questions concerning the use of backpacks can be directed to the Director of Student Support Services at 817.252.2000.
