District Improvement Team (DIT)The district-wide improvement committee, known as the District Improvement Team (DIT), is composed of certified campus professionals, District-level staff, parents of students enrolled in the District, community members, and business representatives.
Defined by Texas law, the DIT advises the Superintendent in such areas as planning, staffing patterns, budgeting, staff development, curriculum, and school organization. To find out what the DIT is working on now, click here!

Message from Superintendent of Schools, Grab and Go Meals – New schedule for week of March 30
Message from Superintendent of Schools - March 31, 2020
In alignment with Governor Abbott’s Executive Order issued this afternoon, Spring Branch ISD will extend the timeline for the suspension of our normal operations through May 1, 2020. The earliest we would return to school would be Monday, May 4.
We will review our reopening plans the week of April 27. We also will continue to align with guidance from local, state and national government and health agencies.
SBISD plans to continue supporting our students’ learning via the online Digital Backpack, and we plan to continue providing Grab and Go Meals while the district remains closed.
We understand the impact of the district’s sustained closure on our families, staff and community. We very much appreciate your continued patience and support as we continue to work as swiftly and effectively as possible to support you all at this time.
We also ask all of the Spring Branch Family to abide by the City of Houston and Harris County Stay Home Work Safe and social distancing guidelines. It’s up to all of us to do our part as we face this health crisis together.
Jennifer Blaine, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
