Spring Branch ISD Board to meet Monday night

The Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees will meet Monday night and will continue its discussions regarding a possible bond election in May to fund school construction and renovation, equipment and technology.

The board will meet at 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 24, at the district’s headquarters, 955 Campbell Road in Houston.

Board members will not vote Monday on whether to call a bond election but will have discussions about the potential for a bond program to fund Career and Technical Education facility improvements along with other potential district needs.
Also, at Monday’s board meeting:

  • The administration will honor the Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees in recognition of School Board Appreciation Month. SBISD board members are committed to Every Child and believe that all students can be successful learners. The board members also believe that the best education is tailored to students' individual needs. Together they are committed to assuring that all SBISD students graduate ready for post-secondary success and attain a technical certificate, military training, a two-year degree, or four-year degree following high school graduation (Spring Branch T-2-4). The SBISD Board of Trustees serves as a strong advocate for public education. These seven public servants, elected by local voters, receive no compensation for their tireless efforts. Superintendent Jennifer Blaine said, “We recognize and thank our Trustees for their dedication to the continuing success of Spring Branch ISD, our students, our staff and our schools.”
  • Dr. Blaine will receive a special recognition from the board for being one of only 19 superintendents nationwide named as a “Superintendent to Watch” by the National School Public Relations Association.
  • The board will honor Betty Ann Taylor, recipient of the Governor's Lifetime Volunteer Achievement Award. The award honors exemplary service by individuals and organizations making a significant and measurable contribution to Texas communities. Awardees are selected for volunteer work that effectively addresses a critical need, makes a sustained positive impact on the community and inspires others to get involved in their cause or community. By working with SBISD and Communities in Schools on campuses, Ms. Taylor has created a sustainable system for serving the most vulnerable families in the community, even throughout the pandemic.
  • The board will recognize Molly Nipper, teacher at Bendwood School, as a recipient of The Sharon Elaine Saunders Endowed Scholarship in Graduate Education from Houston Baptist University.
  • SBISD Executive Director of Athletics Paige Hershey will be honored as a recipient of a 2021 Citation Award from the National Federation of State High School Associations for her more than 30 years of contributions as a teacher, coach and athletics administrator.
