    GCISD Announces new Executive Director of Communications


    Kristin Snively, current GCISD Director of Communications, has been named the Executive Director of Communications. Trustees approved the recommendation during the regular board meeting on Monday, December 18.


    “We are extremely proud of Mrs. Snively for earning this opportunity,” said GCISD Superintendent Dr. Robin Ryan. “During the past five years with GCISD, she has been integral to the success of the Communications Department and, in particular, helping all of our campus administrators improve their communication. Whether through social media, crisis communication to parents or human interest stories, Mrs. Snively has become a leader in championing our district and we look forward to seeing how she advances our communication efforts and engagement with the community.”   


    The search for a new Executive Director began when Rick Hadley announced his retirement in October. As the Director of Communications, Snively has served as the direct liaison to the Educational Division of the district and has coordinated their communications on key issues, led the annual convocation event for staff, created the “Game Day Experience” for parents and spectators attending varsity football games, and coordinated multi-media communications related to Soaring Valor.

  • Building Excellent Schools Together!

    The B.E.S.T. Report
    Building Excellent Schools Together
    Expect ~ Relate ~ Innovate
    Did you watch the National Championship game last Monday night between Georgia and Alabama? Millions of people around the country watched until the last play of the game, which was either thrilling or heartbreaking...depending on who you were hoping would win.
    Interestingly, we all had several choices for how we wanted to watch the game. You could choose to watch the game the “old fashioned” way with two TV broadcasters describing the action. You also could choose to watch the game on the Coaches Film Room view, where several college coaches sit around a table eating pizza and commenting on the details of each play. You could choose the Homers Telecast, led by former players from Alabama and Georgia.  There was the Finebaum Film Room, where Paul Finebaum and friends commented and took viewer calls during the game. You could choose to watch the Command Center view, with a split screen and multiple camera views and isolated camera feeds on both head coaches. You could watch ESPN Deportes to hear the commentators in Spanish. You could watch the game online from the SkyCam angle and an even higher angle that showed all 22 players on the field at one time. You could even go “old school” and listen to the game on the radio.
    Our society wants to have input on just about everything, even how to watch a football game on TV. Luckily, in GCISD we also provide choice and opportunity for feedback. Many of our students have choices about the programs in which they are involved. Our teachers have been pioneers in the Student Voice initiative, uniquely empowering our students to have a voice and choices in their education. We have instituted Arena Scheduling for our high school students to choose their exact schedule, much like in college. And the GCISD Learning Institute provided our staff a voice and choice in professional development opportunities.
    I am proud to work with such a dedicated staff who understand the demands of 21st Century Learning and who are meeting those challenges with innovative solutions. It’s just another way we are Building Excellent Schools Together!
    Happy 2018!
