A Note To Our Raiders
To Our Raiders,
We hear your voices. We see your frustrations on social media. We are listening and learning. Our hearts are heavy. Please know that you are ALL a cherished part of the Raider family.
We are heartbroken over the violent events of the last week to ten days across our nation, but none have saddened us more than the death of George Floyd. SISD does not condone any kind of violence, particularly those motivated by the marginalization of any human being.
Students, despite enduring a spring apart, we want you to know that we are still here for you, no matter what.
Our Vision Statement for Sunnyvale ISD is stated simply in two words: Raiders Rise. During these times, not only must we continue to rise, but we must always stand together because we are better together.
Your teachers, coaches, directors, advisers and counselors are all here for you. If you need to talk, we are ready to listen. Please contact us anytime. We are here for you.

SISD Names Dr. Kyle Penn New Assistant Superintendent of Finance and Operations
Sunnyvale ISD’s Board of Trustees has named Dr. Kyle Penn the Assistant Superintendent of Finance and Operations for SISD. The board approved Dr. Penn’s hire at a called meeting of the Board of Trustees on April 6. Penn’s first day at SISD will be June 1.
Dr. Penn fulfills a role vacated by long-time Business Manager Margaret Davis, who will retire at the end of the school year.
“Kyle brings a broad range of experience to SISD,” Superintendent Doug Williams said. “His experience as a district administrator in finance and operations combined with his work as a campus administrator and teacher make him a great fit for Sunnyvale.”
Dr. Penn, an experienced educator and administrator with over 12 years in education, offers SISD a varied skill set - from teaching to CTE departmental direction to finance administration. He joins SISD after serving as the Assistant Superintendent of Finance and Operations at Westwood ISD in Palestine, Texas, a position he held for two years. Prior to that, he served in the Assistant Principal capacity for four years in Kaufman ISD, also serving as the CTE Director for two of those years. He has also served as a teacher and then Instructional Technology Director at Faith Family Academy in Dallas. He is also an adjunct professor for the University of Texas at Tyler.
Dr. Penn recognizes the established success of SISD’s business and finances and is eager to build upon it, specifically those outlined by SISD’s strategic plan.
“SISD has an excellent financial track record and I will continue to prioritize these practices for SISD, as I have in my current district,” Dr. Penn said. “The community has shown trust in the district through the passage of multiple bond elections and recently the TRE. Now, the district will continue to honor the promises made by carrying out the TRE expenditures aligned with the strategic plan and being responsible for the resources entrusted to us by the taxpayers of Sunnyvale ISD.”
His goals for SISD’s Finance and Operations Department include building relationships and maintaining trust among stakeholders.
“My goal would be to continue to nurture a culture of collaboration with all the stakeholders and instructional leaders to continue moving the district forward with organizational excellence, while maintaining the strong financial accountability the community and Board of Trustees has come to expect,” Dr. Penn said.
Dr. Penn and his wife, Whitney, live in Kaufman and have two children: Knox, who will be a first grader at the elementary school and a three-year-old named Nash.
