GCISD meets state accountability standards for 2014 ​
District and campus accountability ratings were released on August 8. GCISD and all campuses met the state accountability standards for 2014. In addition several campuses in GCISD received distinction designations for academic performance in reading/ELA, math, science, social studies, or top 25 percent in student progress, top 25 percent closing performance gaps, or top 25 percent in postsecondary readiness.

Distinction designations are determined by campus performance compared to 40 other "like campuses" in the state of Texas. Only those in the top 10 of the cohort receive a distinction designation. This year nine campuses received a designation in Reading/ELA, four campuses received one in math, five in science, three in social studies, two in student progress, four in closing performance gaps, and three in postsecondary readiness. Grapevine High School received five distinction designations, Colleyville Heritage High School and Cross Timbers Middle School received four distinction designations, O.C. Taylor and Bear Creek elementary schools each received three distinction designations. This is a significant increase over 2013 accountability performance.​
