Condolences to Neblett Elementary

We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our Neblett Elementary students, R’Niyah Williams. She was a cheerful third-grader and will be remembered as a great student with a gentle spirit. We extend condolences to her family, teachers, and classmates during this time.


R'Niyah also had the opportunity to attend Wakefield Elementary in kindergarten through second grade. We are extending our heartfelt sympathy to that campus as well and ask that you continue to keep R'Niyah's family and friends in prayer.

Spring Retirement Deadline is Approaching!

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:

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.
