Dr. Dustin Barton
 Superintendent of Schools

Welcome to Skidmore-Tynan Independent School District, home of the Bobcats! Our school district is a wonderful place to learn and teach. With a small enrollment, we are able to provide all of our students with a learning environment that meets individual student needs. 

Educating children is our primary purpose. As we create a personal approach to learning for each student, we are reminded that children in our buildings come to us with different gifts and talents. The function of an excellent school system is to create and maintain the expectation that every student will master the state’s curriculum and develop those unique gifts and talents. 

I recognize and appreciate the tradition of achievement that S-TISD has continually maintained.  I have the utmost confidence in our educators' abilities and we will be successful in our endeavor to raise the performance of our students, yet again. Our emphasis will be to ensure that we have a relentless focus on learning and this focus is embedded into everything we do.

As you review our school district’s web page, please consider Skidmore-Tynan ISD, in Skidmore,Texas and all that it has to offer.
