We want to WELCOME you to Sanger ISD. As Homeless and Parent Liaison we are all about engaging community involvement in support of students success in the classroom. A vast array of community support programs to serve our Homeless Students through both the SISD Families in Transition Program and the SISD Community Support Programs are available.
Community Support Programs ~ Outreach programs consist of:
SISD Mobile Resource Center...."The Purple Bus" with Homework assistance, Lending Library and tutorials each Monday and Tuesday afternoons from 4-5 p.m. in various locations around our city throughout the school year.
In the Summer the bus is staffed and maintains an extensive route every Wednesday morning from 8-12 noon as a summer mobile lending library.
Sanger ISD Community Outreach also conducts a "BACK TO SCHOOL" assistance program with qualifying identified students. These students receive assistance with a backpack, basic school supplies, clothing items and shoes all of which is supported through community partnerships upon enrollment or at the beginning of the school year.
Additional outreach programs include the "FRIDAY BACKPACK" program supplying weekend and extended break emergency food for identified qualifying students as well as serving as a classroom site for Adult ESL Classes through a partnership with Denton ISD Adult Education offices.
For information about these programs and how you can support the SISD Community Outreach programs contact Margarita Dunn at 940-458-4859.
Thank you to Walmart Leadership Academy for the Grant Award of $2,500 to be used on our Purple Bus Tutoring. Students who are unable to partake in tutoring because they cannot stay after school will now have the opportunity in the community to come to the Purple Bus and be tutored by one of our staff.
Families in Transition Program ~ The Families in Transition program supports students who are experiencing housing issues and qualify under the McKinney Vento definition of lacking a fixed, regular and adequate nigh time residence. The Families in Transition program can assist these students with enrollment, birth certificate, basic school supplies, nutritional programs, transportation, and community referals for additional needs.
Community Service Booklet ~ Sanger ISD Community Outreach Center compiles a Referral Booklet for anyone to utilize when researching assistance. Booklet is updated annually and available in print through SISD Counselors, School Nurses, Denton County COOP, Sanger Crisis Center and through SISD Community Outreach Center.
