What is an RSS Feed?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". An RSS feed is a web format used to publish frequently updated content such as news headlines or podcasts. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.

San Angelo ISD's RSS feeds allow our visitors to keep track of information from around the district. By subscribing to our RSS feeds you will have access to the most current content from our website as soon as it is published. Our available feeds include news headlines, highlights from around the district, job postings, upcoming events, and cafeteria menus.
