Campus principals and central office staff participated in the “I Love U Guys” Foundation school safety and response training on Wednesday. Sherman ISD Transportation and Safety Director Brett Counce led the training which focused on educating school administrators on Standard Response Protocol and the Standard Reunification Method. Participants learned the history of the "I Love You Guys" program, and information on how campuses implement the school safety program and manage daily operational school-based events.


The “I Love U Guys” Foundation was started in 2006 by Ellen and John-Michael Keyes following a school shooting that took the life of their daughter, Emily. The Foundation is committed to school and community safety, and family reunification following a crisis. Over 25,000 schools, agencies, and organizations have implemented the program across the United States and Canada. As Sherman ISD continues to refine school safety and security, the "I Love You Guys" safety and response program will help guide the district's safety and security protocols.


As Sherman ISD works to enhance safety and security throughout the district, additional information will be provided to your campus about the "I Love You Guys" program. For more information about the “I Love U Guys” Foundation, please visit www.iloveuguys.org.

Spring Retirement Reminder

Big picture

In accordance to Board Policy DEC (Local), Sherman ISD pays you for a portion of unused local leave at retirement. The Human Resources Department wants to ensure that all employees are aware of the upcoming timelines set out in this policy so that any employee that is planning to retire will not miss out on this opportunity. Please review the important information and dates below:

If a professional contracted employee intends to retire at the end of 2019, he or she must submit a letter of resignation to Human Resources no later than 4:00 pm on the dates listed below:

207 Day Contract Employee- Monday, March 4, 2019
226 Day Contract Employee- Monday, March 25, 2019


If a non-contracted employee intends to retire and desires payment for local sick leave, then he or she must submit a letter of resignation to Human Resources no later than two weeks before the last day of employment. If a retiring SISD employee does not meet this requirement, he or she will not be paid for any local sick leave upon retirement as determined by SISD Board Policy. If you have any questions about this, please contact the Executive Director of Human Resources Jill O’Neal at 903-891-6410 or via email at joneal@shermanisd.net.
