DESK Non-Profit Donates over $72,000 to SAISD Schools to Help Students in Need of School Supplies

As SAISD families prepare for students to head back to school next Wednesday, August 17th, those in need of help for school supplies have an opportunity for support at their schools thanks to the DESK non-profit organization. On Monday, DESK representative Vicki Loso presented SAISD school principals with funds for school supplies for students in need for the 2022-2023 school year in an amount totaling $72,011.02. The funds are divided out among all of our SAISD campuses based on need, and go toward the purchase of school supplies that are generally kept in an on-site school supply closet at the campus. To request support, SAISD parents and students can reach out to their campus counselors, at-risk coordinators or social workers or teachers may do so on their behalf.

San Angelo ISD teachers, staff, and administrators gathered on the morning of Wednesday, August 10, 2022 at the San Angelo Stadium for a district-wide, outdoor annual back-to-school convocation. The celebratory event welcomes all district employees to the new school year and provides a pep rally-type atmosphere honoring each campus and department - and every one of our Difference Makers.

This year’s theme took inspiration from the new Elvis movie, the audience was entertained by an Elvis impersonator contest featuring a representative from each of our SAISD campuses and departments.

San Angelo ISD Temporarily Delays High School 9th-12th Grade Bus Transportation for 2 Weeks Due to Driver Shortage 

Like school districts and businesses across the United States, San Angelo ISD is also experiencing an unprecedented bus driver shortage and increased student ridership. SAISD is addressing the shortage with a temporary delay of bus transportation for our high school students, in grades 9-12, at Central High School, Central High School on Oakes, and Lake View High School for the first two weeks of school. We currently have eight bus routes without drivers for the start of the school year, and are looking to hire 12 bus drivers for the 2022-2023 school year. Transportation for high school students will resume Tuesday, September 6, 2022 after the Labor Day holiday. 

There will be no change to elementary and middle school bus routes. San Angelo ISD administrators and board members are diligently working on a solution to our bus driver shortage.
