SISD technology uses featured in magazine
In the February 2015 issue, Texas Coop Power Magazine features an article about high speed internet and how rural residents, businesses and schools are impacted by the types of broadband connectivity they have. Smithville ISD is featured as an example of a high speed broadband client and the article shows the many ways the district uses high speed networking for curriculum, wireless devices and classroom technology. OPEN STORY
Through the TIGER ADVANTAGE PROGRAM, Smithville ISD partners with area businesses to foster positive, mutually beneficial relationships. Employees receive extra services or discounts as a thank you from the businesses for their efforts to ensure an exemplary school district for our children. Businesses benefit through additional exposure to their 250+ dedicated team members. As businesses and organizations support the SISD employees with offers of free and/or reduced prices for services or goods, SISD will promote those businesses and offers to their staff through employee communications.
