It has come to the attention of the Center Independent School District that there is a rumor that the passing of the
recent bond is the reason that property taxes have gone up. We wanted to assure you that this is not the case. The
school district can only set the tax rate. We have no control over local property value assignments. For instance, for
the 2022-2023 school year our M&O Tax rate dropped by almost a dime from the 2021-2022 school year. However,
the State Comptroller’s office has forced the increase in property values across the State, which is what caused
property owner’s taxes to increase. I am including a chart with historical information for Center ISD.
2022-2023 $ 0.9429 $ 0.2875 $ 1.2304 $ 646,988,724
2021-2022 $ 1.0402 $ 0.2875 $ 1.3277 $ 561,615,134
2020-2021 $ 1.0547 $ 0.3025 $ 1.3572 $ 538,863,800
2019-2020 $ 1.0683 $ 0.2438 $ 1.3121 $ 536,115,353
2018-2019 $ 1.1700 $ 0.2438 $ 1.4138 $ 518,558,463
2017-2018 $ 1.1700 $ 0.1638 $ 1.3338 $ 508,186,800

Shelbyville School info

Shelbyville High School students, Maddie Lout, Travis Caporali, Ava Silva, and Aubree Camp will be competing in the 113th U.I.L. state CX debate tournament held at the University of Texas in Austin in March. In district 23AA, freshmen, Maddie and Travis placed 2nd, and seniors, Ava and Aubree placed first with Ava being awarded top speaker. “UIL debate competition motivates students and provides them with practical application for the skills they are developing,” said Jana Riggins, UIL State Debate Director. “This year’s debate topic prompted students to research and form their own thoughts and opinions on the real-world issue our government is challenged with: Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase its security cooperation

with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in one or more of the following areas: artificial intelligence, biotechnology, cybersecurity.” Shelbyville Speech and Debate is coached by Emily Sowell and Crystal Harrison.



On January 4-5, Shelbyville High School seniors, Ava Silva and Aubree Camp competed in the AA U.I.L. State Congress competition held in Austin, TX. After six hours of competition on day 1, both girls earned a prestigious spot in the finals. On day 2, the top 18 competitors competed in the capitol building. Ava Silva was awarded 2nd place. Shelbyville Speech and Debate is coached by Emily Sowell and Crystal Harrison.

We are Dragon Proud!




S. W. Carter Elementary School students will return to school Wednesday, January 4 (instead of
Tuesday), due to ongoing repairs to damage caused by the recent freeze. Shelbyville Middle
School and Shelbyville High School students will return to school as scheduled on Tuesday,


Shelbyville Dragons Basketball Games have been changed.

Girls are cancelled today with Joaquin and rescheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, 14 at 5:00

Boys games are cancelled with Logansport.



On Tuesday, November 8, Shelbyville students Maddie Lout, Ava Silva,
and Aubree Camp competed at the Region 7 AA U.I.L. Congress
competition held at Center First United Pentecostal Church. The U.I.L.
website describes the competition as, "An individual contest in a
large group setting. It models the legislative process of democracy,
specifically, the United States Congress. Within this mock legislative
assembly competition, contestants draft legislation (proposed laws and
position statements) submitted to the tournament, and they research
the docket of bills and resolutions dealing with real-world social and
political policies prior to the contest to prepare their speeches. At
the tournament, students caucus in committees, deliver formal
discourse on the merits and disadvantages of each piece of legislation
and vote to pass or defeat the measures they have examined.
Parliamentary procedure forms structure for the discourse, and
students extemporaneously respond to others’ arguments over the course
of a session." Maddie placed 4th as a freshman and is an alternate to
the state competition, Aubree Camp placed 2nd, qualifying for state,
and Ava Silva was awarded regional champion and outstanding presiding
officer. The state competition will be held in Austin on January 4-5.
The students and coaches would like to thank Center United Pentecostal
Church for hosting over 100 students for the competition.

We are Dragon Proud!!   Good Luck at State! 

 The Shelbyville Speech and debate team is coached by Emily Sowell.





Shelbyville High School’s Emily Pharris, competed at the 2A State Cross Country
Championship, at Old Settler’s Park in Round Rock TX on Nov. 4,2022 and brought
home a gold medal. Emily is a prime example of hard work and dedication pays off.
She has shown up every day for practice whether it’s at 6:30 am or 4:30 pm after
school. On top of being the new 2A State Champion she is also a scholar student,
taking college classes on top of her high school work, and always lending a helping
hand. Before the cross country state race, I asked her how she was feeling and her
answer was real simple, “I’m just ready to be done so the faster I run the quicker I will
be finished.” As a long distance runner to be great you have to have a strong mental will
to win. Emily, out of all the kids I have coached or been around, definitely has that
mental strength! She took the lead early on in the state meet and kept it the entire time.
When Emily gets beat by someone once she rarely allows that person to beat her again
and that is something not many are able to accomplish on their own, but Emily has
shown she can do it time and time again. The whole season in fact, if she got beat by a
runner the next meet they were at together Em made it a point to go beat them. She
went from having huge leads in meets and not having enough kick to finish, to leading
an entire race and never allowing herself to take her foot off the gas. She is a natural
leader, student athlete, and all around great young person. We can’t wait to see what
she does in track and field this season and even what she does in her future. She has
made our Shelbyville family and community proud and has brought back another gold
medal to Shelbyville’s already stored tradition of winning and excellence. Way to go
Champ! We are Dragon Proud!



The Shelbyville Dragon band advanced to the State UIL Marching Finals. Our band marches at 6:45 pm tonight.

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released accountability rating grades for districts
and campuses throughout Texas this week. Shelbyville ISD is pleased to announce
that our school district received an ‘A’ rating for the 2021-22 school year. In addition,
Shelbyville School (S.W. Carter Elementary School, Shelbyville Middle School, and
Shelbyville High School) received a campus rating of an ‘A’ rating for the 2021-22
school year. The TEA accountability ratings are based on student performance on state
standardized tests, graduation rates, and college, career and military readiness
outcomes. The ratings are also determined by examining STAAR/EOC results to assess
student achievement, school progress and whether districts and campuses are closing
achievement gaps among various student groups. The website
contains interactive accountability rating reports and detailed reports for each district,
campus and open-enrollment charter school in the state of Texas.
Although Shelbyville ISD is proud of the continued academic success accomplished by
our students and staff, we must point out that we believe our school district is defined by
much more than the single letter grade generated by the State’s accountability rating
system. We would have been disappointed with a letter grade less than an ‘A,” but we
would not have thought any less of the outstanding accomplishments of our students
and staff in academics, extracurriculars, community service, and citizenship. Our
school district works diligently to develop well-rounded lifelong learners who display
responsibility, intelligence, compassion, leadership, stewardship, character, and
problem-solving abilities. Just as Shelbyville ISD believes our school district is much
more than a letter grade assigned by the State, SISD also believes our students are
much more than an individual score on STAAR, a letter grade on a subject test, or a
performance result in an extracurricular competition.
We value every student in Shelbyville. Working with our parents and other
stakeholders, Shelbyville ISD’s faculty and staff are committed to protecting our
students and being with them every step of the way to help navigate disappointments
and challenges and to celebrate successes, both big and small. Shelbyville students,
staff, and community will continue to work closely together to make each of us a better
person and to try and make the world a better place. We look forward to having
another outstanding school year! It is a great day to be a DRAGON!

Shelbyville ISD Recognizes School Board


The month of January is proclaimed School Board Recognition Month to emphasize the importance of the men and women across the state of Texas who serve on school boards.  Shelbyville I.S.D. students benefit every day from the dedication and commitment to public education of our local trustees.  Our current board members are Etola Jones, President, 12 years; Mark Bohannon, Vice-President, 8 years; Joey Lawson, Secretary, 9 years; Joe Tom Schillings, 13 years; Tim Bradshaw, 8 years;

Chris Koltonski, 6 years; and Lori Alvis, 3 years.  These men and women sit through meetings, read reports, listen to parents’ concerns, and do hard work to benefit the students and the community.  They serve without pay, giving of their time and expertise to ensure that young Texans have the skills needed for lifelong success.  These local citizens are elected by the community to make critical decisions that directly affect the future of our youth.  At this time, we say thank you to these dedicated volunteers.  We appreciate their generous sharing of time and energy.  They truly do “rise above” for our schools.  “Thank You” to the Shelbyville I.S.D. School Board.
