SISD Mentor Library
Mentor Library  
The Sunnyvale ISD mentor library is an opportunity for you to invest in the future of Sunnyvale ISD students. We are asking for adults in the community to volunteer their time to speak to a group of students as part of their ELUs or other classroom activities. Because whether you know it or not, you have some great information that you can share with our students that will enhance their learning experience and ensure they are future ready. If you are interested please visit for more info and to sign up today. 

New Math App
Math Mayhem  
Download our new app Math Mayhem, and have fun while challenging your mind. All proceeds go toward new technology for our campuses - spread the word!
 The new Math Mayhem game for the Apple Store was made to help budgets the Technology Department. The game is .99 cents on the app store and Coach Simmons' classes were assigned to find a way to market sell the app. Not only is the app fun, but it will help all of the technology departments in all of the Sunnyvale Schools. The target market is younger kids' parents who want to help their kids get better at math but also have fun doing so. The game is also fun for older teens and adults because the game does get pretty challenging after a few minutes. When the person downloads the game, they need to post their high score to some sort of social media with the hashtag #TW2K15 so that we know that they bought the app and playing it.

    SISD: One of Only 24 Districts to Earn Postsecondary Distinction
    The following is an excerpt from the TEA press release issued Friday, August 7:

    AUSTIN – The Texas Education Agency today released the 2015 state accountability ratings for more than 1,200 school districts and charters. The ratings reveal that 94 percent of school districts and charters across Texas achieved the rating of Met Standard. 

     Districts and charters (except for those comprised of only one campus) that achieve a Met Standard rating are also eligible to receive a distinction designation for postsecondary readiness. The distinction takes into account factors such as graduation rates, ACT/SAT participation and performance, Career and Technical Education (CTE) graduates and dual credit course completion rates. Postsecondary readiness is the only distinction at the district level.

     Only 24 school districts and charters earned this distinction for 2015.

     “Earning any type of distinction under the state accountability system is commendable and should be a source of pride in that community,” said Commissioner of Education Michael Williams. “Achieving the postsecondary readiness distinction reflects extraordinary work taking place within a district or charter while affirming a strong commitment to all their students.” 

    To view the 2015 state accountability ratings for districts, charters and campuses (plus distinction designations earned at the campus and district level), visit the Texas Education Agency website at

    SISD Receives "Exceeds Expectations" Rating On District Rating Metric
     SISD Rating
     The district rating metric is a culmination of work put in by administrators, faculty, parents, and community leaders in a continued effort to ensure that our students are future ready.  
    This rating metric takes into account not only our districts' outstanding performance on the STAAR exam but the overall educational experience and performance of our students as well as the professional practices and preparedness of our teachers and administrators.  The metric covers six domains including Future Readiness, Fine Arts and Athletic Programs, as well as STAAR data.  Our district is rated based on 71 specific criteria areas across those domains that are based on campus and grade level appropriateness as well as district goals.  Based on all of these factors the district received an "Exceeds Expectations" rating for the 2014-2015 school year.
