Shelbyville I.S.D. is pleased to announce that all Shelbyville I.S.D. retirees will be admitted free of charge to home athletic events for the 2022-2023 school year by presenting a special pass.

If you are a Shelbyville I.S.D. retiree and do not receive a pass by mail, please come by the administration office or call 598-2641.

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.
