SBISD Schools “Reboot” After Hurricane Harvey


SBISD operations personnel worked tirelessly before, during and after Hurricane Harvey, making sure that district facilities were sealed and secure. District facilities fared well during the storm, and every school was able to open on Monday, Sept. 11, as the school year “rebooted.” 

Here’s a look at how that happened.

At the Monday, Sept. 25, Board of Trustees meeting, Associate Superintendent for Talent and Operations Jennifer Blaine presented the #IAMSBISD award to a group of directors who stepped up into senior leadership roles during Hurricane Harvey and the subsequent recovery. 

Director of Facilities David Vesling, Director of Planning Travis Stanford, Director of Transportation Sherry Lawson, Executive Director of Athletics Paige Hershey, Controller David Bender, Director of Child Nutrition Services Chris Kamradt and Director of Applications Mark Maxwell were recognized for #CollectiveGreatness for their extraordinary leadership before, during and after the storm, when several senior staff members were displaced by floodwaters. 

The #IAMSBISD award is presented to individuals who exemplify one or more of SBISD’s core values: #CollaborativeSpirit, #CollectiveGreatness, #EveryChild, #LimitlessCuriousity and #MoralCompass.
