At Snyder ISD, we want to surround our students with the best. To recruit and retain top-tier staff, the Board of Trustees recently voted to adopt a hybrid calendar for the 23-24 school year. The calendar was designed with input from parents, students, staff, and the community to account for attendance, maximize school time, and improve school/work-life balance.

Additionally, Snyder ISD provides the following:

  • 175 Duty Days

  • 100% of employee medical, dental, and vision PAID

  • FREE Pre-K for staff kids

  • Salaries above state base

  • Stipends for bilingual and special education

  • Performance-based incentives (STAAR & CTE)
