New this school year, Spring Branch ISD now has a district-wide plan for the Remind communications platform. Remind is an additional optional communications tool available to all schools.   

What is Remind?

Remind is a communication platform that helps educators reach students and families in real time. Teachers and schools can send out reminders and announcements to their classes or groups.

While many Spring Branch ISD teachers have previously used Remind under a free account, a district license will now give them access to many features such as higher character limits and auto-translation in more than 90 languages.

Things to Know

  • Spring Branch ISD uses the information in Skyward to create classes in Remind. This makes it easy for teachers and families to use this platform without worry about what classes to join.  
  • All emails and text messages will only go out to the contact information we have on file in Skyward.
  • Spring Branch ISD does not require parents to download an app to their phones, however doing so will give families better options when communicating with the classroom teacher, coaches, and group leaders.

Be sure to look out for communications from your school regarding the possible use of Remind.

We want to make sure our communications are the best they can be.

Congratulations to 8th grader Sandra Calderon, Character Without Question recipient from Landrum!

Every year, SBISD honors students district-wide who reflect a depth of character and a caring for human beings. Students are selected for demonstrating an enduring commitment to any or all of the following character traits: honesty/integrity, responsibility/dependability, respect, perseverance/effort, courage, caring/kindness, and citizenship/civic virtue.

In her submission form, Sandra’s counselor, Jana Gwinn, wrote that her teachers can count on her to be responsible, dependable and a leader. She volunteers in the community and school with various projects and through the student council. Her teachers spoke about her kindness, how she helps others in and out of class without being asked. “She is a leader with a true servant’s heart”. Sandra was selected for her commitment to responsibility, civic virtue and kindness.

We are excited to announce new SBISD grade level guides (PK-12) that have been developed by our Academics team to provide an overview of what your child will learn in school every nine weeks and resources to support their learning at home.

You will find strategies based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and SBISD priority standards to help you help your child meet his or her learning goals. Teams of SBISD teachers studied the TEKS and further identified the essential, or priority, standards necessary to master at each grade level.
 
These guides provide clear, consistent expectations for what SBISD students should be learning as we strive to prepare Every Child for his/her T-2-4 goals.
 

Access the grade level guides here.

 

The 2020-21 school year will present new challenges and new opportunities for Spring Branch ISD and our community. No matter what challenges we face, our responsibility is to ensure students in SBISD continue learning safely and effectively. Our commitment to inspire minds and shape lives while maintain-ing student learning and academic performance is non-negotiable.
 
The District is equally resolved in its commitment to go beyond to  prioritize health and safety for students, employees and the entire SBISD Family.  These two overriding priorities have informed and shaped  
our 2020-21 back-to-school plan, LearnSBISD.
 
LearnSBISD affirms how - together - we’ll support these priorities, and your role as our vital partners. LearnSBISD provides information families need to make the best decisions for their child’s education. 
 
The plan was informed by countless hours of research and planning by district and campus leaders, employee and family surveys, medical professionals, lessons learned from Spring 2020, summer pilot programs, and local, state and national health and government agency guidance. LearnSBISD addresses four critical areas of focus.
 
OUR PLAN FOCUSES ON: 
 
Health and Safety 
Teaching and Learning 
Family Supports
Staying Connected
