Snyder ISD is now accepting referrals for students who may need Gifted/Talented
Services for the school year. This program is designed for students who exhibit
intellectual and creative thinking abilities at an extraordinary level not normally served in
the regular classroom. Services are provided only upon identification of education needs
of the student. Anyone wishing to refer a student attending Snyder ISD in kindergarten
through twelfth grade this school year is asked to go by the student’s campus office and
request a copy of the referral form. This form must be returned to the school by
November 22. Those unable to go by the school should call the campus to request a form
be sent to them.

An eagerly awaited meeting with Snyder ISD leadership and the TEA Commissioner came to fruition in Austin today. Eddie Bland, Ed.D., Superintendent of Snyder ISD, Ralph Ramon SISD Board of Trustees President, and Brad Hinton, SISD Board of Trustees Vice President, met with Commissioner Mike Morath to discuss sanctions against the district for Snyder Junior High’s academic rating. Texas Education Code §39A. 112(b) allows for parent petitions to direct the Commissioner’s decision. On October 31, 2019, Dr. Bland was presented with 313 petitions, a sufficient number to require the closure of the campus. In addition to the parent petitions for closure, Dr. Bland was presented with 486 parent and community petitions supporting the reopening of Snyder Junior High with a grade realignment.
The petitions will be delivered to the Commissioner no later than December 1, 2019. The next step will require SISD to develop and submit a comprehensive plan to reopen the campus, with the majority of the grades realigned.
“These next steps will require planning and partnership," states Dr. Bland. "We look forward to collaborating with parents, teachers, district leadership, community members, and the TEA to do what is best for our students."
