Superintendent's Message

Welcome to the Penelope Independent School District website!

Our website is designed so that the visitor will be able to find up-to-date information about our district as well as learn about those things that make Penelope, Texas, such a wonderful place to teach and to live in.

As your superintendent, I encourage you to spend some time learning about our school and what terrific things we have to offer our children. With roots beginning in the late 1800’s, Penelope has always taken pride in providing our kids the very best education possible. Today, with the support of a strong rural community, the values of hard work and accountability can still be seen and felt within the halls of the school.

While the last few years have seen declining student numbers and difficult financial situations for many schools, Penelope ISD has seen an increase in student enrollment of approximately 20 percent and our fund balance has increased dramatically. In addition, we have been able to maintain class sizes that are well below the state averages. This progress can be attributed to a community that works positively with the school and genuinely cares about its children.

I am very proud to be a member of the Penelope community and its school system. Browse our website and learn more about who we are and what we do. If you would like to visit with me personally, my door is almost always open.

I’ll see you in the halls!

Scot Kelley
