  • Dr. Rick Westfall named lone finalist for superintendent in Keller ISD


    Rick Westfall GCISD Deputy Superintendent Dr. Rick Westfall has been named the lone finalist in the Keller ISD superintendent search. Keller Trustees approved Dr. Westfall with a 6-0 vote during a special meeting on Monday, May 8. There will now be a state-mandated 21-day waiting period before Dr. Westfall is officially named superintendent.


    “I want to thank the entire GCISD community for allowing me to serve as your Deputy Superintendent for the last six years,” Dr. Westfall said. “When I look back at what we have accomplished during this time as part of LEAD 2021, I am incredibly proud of the progress we have made and the redefined educational opportunities we are providing for students.”


    The search for Keller’s new superintendent began in January when current superintendent Dr. Randy Reid announced his retirement effective July 2017. Dr. Westfall is familiar with the Keller community as he served as Keller High School principal from 2008-2011.


    “We are so excited for Dr. Westfall and the opportunity he has to serve as superintendent in Keller ISD,” said Dr. Robin Ryan, GCISD Superintendent. “Rick is a tremendous leader and it has been a honor to serve with him. We wish Rick the best of luck in this new chapter of his career.”

BEST Report

  • 2017 Employees of the Year

    Posted by Communication Services at 5/12/2017

    They were humble. They were surprised. They were a little embarrassed by the attention.

     

    This week, we recognized the GCISD Employees of the Year in many categories. Each time, a small group accompanied me to the employee’s campus and interrupted their day to make a brief presentation and tell them how much we appreciate the work they do on behalf of students and families in GCISD.

     

    After a brief pause and a few pictures, each Employee of the Year just wanted to get back to their job serving others. In addition to the support and applause from the students, what also struck me was the level of support from their peers. People cheered loudly, gave hugs, clapped and even shed a few tears of joy for our honorees.

     

    Our newest Employees of the Year will have their portrait on the Wall of Honor at the PDEC so that all visitors may take a moment to learn a little bit about these recognized individuals. Additionally, our two Teachers of the Year, Will Boykin from Glenhope Elementary and Jon McCormick from Colleyville Heritage, will now advance to the Region 11 competition. The entire list is below. If you see one of these amazing GCISD employees, it might embarrass them a bit, but please thank them for a job well done. We all know that it is the people that make GCISD the BEST!

     

    BEST,
    RR
