  • SMISD Distance Learning Center
    The SMISD Distance Learning Learning Center is here to assist, guide, and provide the Santa Maria Community with resources, and answers to their questions. Santa Maria ISD is working with Texas Education Agency (TEA) to provide internet access to every student who does not have internet access at home. Additionally, we are using our resources to provide a technology device for every student who needs one. Our goal is for every student to participate in synchronous (live) instruction if they choose remote learning. Following the instructions and guidelines from TEA and the Health Department, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority. We have provided training and will continue to train our teachers and staff on how to use technology and its resources to enhance remote learning for our students. These are difficult times for everyone, but by working together we will meet the challenges. The community's support and patience is greatly appreciated.

  • Parent Notice 

    Dear Parents,
    On Monday, August 10, 2020, the Cameron County Judge and Cameron County Health Authority issued an order delaying In-person Instruction for private and public schools until after September 28, 2020. In addition, Santa Maria ISD submitted an Operation Connectivity Order through Texas Education Agency (TEA) and Region Four to provide internet access to students who do not have internet access at home. Verizon is still in the process of completing the network that will be servicing our area. Therefore, it does not appear that we will have the necessary resources to begin online instruction on August 24, 2020.
