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.
 
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 nighttime residence. The Families in Transition program can assist these students with enrollment, birth certificate, basic school supplies, nutritional programs, transportation, and community referrals for additional needs.
Community Support Programs ~ Outreach programs consist of:
 
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 are 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.
