  • GCISD explores District of Innovation designation


    On Monday, May 25, the GCISD Board of Trustees gave the administration approval to pursue a District of Innovation designation.


    Passed as part of the 84th Texas Legislative Session, the designation as a District of Innovation gives school districts flexibility that is not currently available in public education. According to the Texas Association of School Boards, some of the items the district may choose to be exempt from include but are not limited to:

    • Uniform start date
    • Minimum minutes of instruction
    • Class size ratio
    • The 90 percent attendance rule
    • Teacher certification


    “I want to assure community members that even though we can be exempt from the aforementioned items, this does not mean our district leaders or Board of Trustees are interested in pursuing any specific exemptions,” said GCISD Superintendent Dr. Robin Ryan. “By applying to become a District of Innovation it simply formalizes the work of the district, through a state initiative, and provides the flexibility to continue to realize the objectives of LEAD 2021.”


    The next step is to convene a committee with parents, staff, students and community members to investigate the feasibility of becoming a District of Innovation. If you are interested in being considered for this year-long committee, please contact Dr. Rick Westfall, GCISD Chief Learning Officer, via this form before Friday, June 10.

BEST Report

  • Student Voice

    Posted by Communication Services at 5/26/2016

    This is the last BEST Report of the year! Congratulations! We have made it to the last week of school!


    I know we are wrapping up, but I am already thinking about next year. People often ask me what the next step in LEAD 2021 is going to be and where we are headed. It seems to me that we are at the point of "fine-tuning" our craft. Toward that end, about 70 teachers across the district have been working this year on an initiative called "Student Voice." In a nutshell, it is simply working toward more personalization of students' experiences by simply asking for their input...for their voice to be heard on the topic of their learning.


    The teachers in the Student Voice Project this first year have learned many valuable insights into their teaching and their students' learning. A few quotes from teachers include: " ...this has created a sense of trust in my classroom." and "Students definitely feel valued; I saw a positive shift in the culture."


    It is a District goal to continue the Student Voice Project. I have attached a video that tells a bit more about it.


    I encourage you to view the video and think about it over the summer. We will be looking for more volunteers to use Student Voice in their classrooms. If you'd like to learn more about participating next year, please complete this form.


    For now, let's finish strong with a super last week of school!
