It's About Working Together

In SBISD, two-way dialogue, information sharing and community input are part of our DNA. We're proud of a long and very successful history of strong community involvement.

Local residents provide valuable, ongoing guidance and support to the district and reflect the Board of Trustees' and district leadership's interest in tapping into local expertise and resources.
