Sweetwater ISD offers much more in its college dual credit program than many other schools - with partnerships with Angelo State University, Texas State Technical College, and Western Texas College.
Sweetwater ISD offers free tuition through college partnerships and a local trust.
Sweetwater ISD offers live, face to face, instruction by certified college professors, not online or through distance learning like many other districts.
Sweetwater ISD students can earn 39 college hours through dual credit courses that will transfer through the state common numbering system. When entering college with an Associate Degree obtained in high school like some other schools offer, many hours are not accepted or counted towards a college degree program, thus being counted only as electives those students.
Sweetwater ISD offered experienced career guidance with certified counselors, which begins prior to students entering high school and continues until graduation.
Sweetwater ISD seniors are awarded an average of $800,000.00 in scholarships each year.

Procedures for High School Visitors
Parents and all visitors that visit Sweetwater High School will need to first stop at the Main Office, present a valid Texas ID card (such as a driver license) and obtain a visitor’s pass. The pass must be worn at all times while you are visiting our school. If you wish to talk with your child’s teacher, please make an appointment at least 24 hours before you would like to meet. Teachers cannot interrupt instructional time to talk with parents. However, we would like to encourage parents to take the time to meet with their child's teacher. Recent Sweetwater High School graduates may not visit the campus to each lunch and visit with currently enrolled students.
Sweetwater High School utilizes V-Soft Visitor Security Software. V-Soft helps track visitors, students, faculty, contractors and volunteers at our school, providing a safer more monitored environment. When you obtain a visitor's pass or come into the office to pick-up your child from school, your Texas ID is scanned into this system. This system screens visitors and has the ability to provide alerts on people who may jeopardize the safety of our school.
Thank you for your continued support as we work together to ensure that every child receives a safe, secure and orderly learning community!!!

Drop off & Pick up Procedure:
The parent must sign their child in and out of the classroom each day. Only those people that are on the child’s contact list will be allowed to pick the child up from school. There are no exceptions.
If your child arrives to school after 8:10 am, you must get a tardy slip from the front office, wait with your child in the cafeteria while they eat breakfast, and then take them to their assigned classroom. The only exception is if you bring a doctor’s note.
If your child is going to be absent, please call the front office and report it. If the attendance clerk does not receive a phone call about your child's absence, she will call you.
Lunch Procedure for Pre Kindergarten
The teacher will take the morning class to the cafeteria at 11:00 am for lunch. Morning Pre-K parents need to pick up their children from the cafeteria no later than 11:30 am. Afternoon Pre-K students may be dropped off at their classrooms at 11:30 am. If an afternoon Pre-K student is tardy (after 11:30 am), the parent must stay in the cafeteria with their child while they eat, then take them to their assigned classroom.
When bad weather occurs, please listen to KXOX, 96.7 and watch the local television stations for information about school delays and closings. The doors of the school will open at the time that is mentioned on these stations. The tardy bell will be 15 minutes after the start time.
