• LEAD 2021


  • GCISD will be migrating to new website March 23


    Whether you have kids in high school or a student who just started pre-k, GCISD is a great district to be in. With so many unique student experiences offered and the sound foundation of LEAD 2021, GCISD is creating an innovative environment where students are inspired, encouraged and supported.

    GCISD has been looking to better serve and connect with parents, staff and community members and will be migrating to a new website on Friday, March 23. Not only will there be a fresh look and feel, but the simplicity of the site will allow campuses to better communicate the incredible stories happening in schools to current and prospective parents and community members. This mobile-friendly site will also feature news scrolls and quick links to help you see the latest information and navigate quickly to items you need.

    Mark your calendars and get ready to interact with the district in a whole new way.

  • Creating Safe Schools Together: A Letter to the Community


    Dear GCISD Community,


    Last month, I came to you in an open letter to the community to share in the grief we all felt after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. In that letter, I encouraged everyone to report if they have a suspicion that something might be wrong. See something, say something.


    I am writing you again this afternoon to thank you for your vigilance in keeping our students and staff safe. Early this morning, Grapevine-Colleyville ISD administrators and Colleyville Police Department acted on a tip from a concerned individual who saw something and said something. Working in collaboration with local authorities, the situation was swiftly handled and there was no disruption for any of our students or staff as this was handled off-campus and prior to the beginning of the school day. We would like to thank the individual that brought this to our attention so that we were able to act quickly and keep our students and staff safe.


    I cannot stress enough how critical it is for individuals to come forward when they have a safety concern, no matter how insignificant it may seem. Whether it’s a comment they overheard at school, or something they’ve read online, in GCISD, we investigate every single potential threat with a great sense of urgency.


    A common phrase that I hear after a community is impacted by a shooting is “we didn’t think it could happen here.” I hope that you will have conversations with your students, neighbors, friends and families about the importance of “see something, say something” so that we never have to share in that sentiment in GCISD.


    The responsibility of student safety in GCISD must be a shared priority amongst students, staff, parents, community members and local law enforcement officials. Working together, through open, honest and transparent communication, is the best way that we can proactively address situations as they may arise. In GCISD, we are Building Excellent Schools Together and we could not do that without your continued support and efforts to keep our campuses safe.


    Dr. Robin Ryan
    GCISD Superintendent of Schools

    Tona Blizzard

    The Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA) has named Tona Blizzard, principal at Cannon Elementary: A GCISD STEM School, as a National Distinguished Principal Finalist. The National Distinguished Principal program recognizes exemplary leaders who are setting the standard across the State of Texas and is the highest recognition a principal can receive from his or her peers.


    "I'm very honored to be nominated for such a prestigious recognition and was absolutely speechless when I received the call to notify me I was one of the finalists,” said Blizzard.  “I truly believe that I have the very best job in the world and I feel so fortunate to have the honor of serving as the principal of a school community that is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our Cannon Cubs every day."


    Blizzard has been the principal of Cannon Elementary School for eight years and has spent her entire career in GCISD.

  • Candace McGowan

    Candace McGowan awarded CTAT Career Guidance Award


    GCISD Career and Technical Education Coordinator, Candace McGowan, has been honored with the Career and Technical Association of Texas (CTAT) Career Guidance Award for her outstanding work in the district. McGowan opened “Go Centers” at Grapevine High School and Colleyville Heritage High School, which allows students to learn what is necessary to continue their education after high school. In addition to opening the Go Centers, McGowan has also partnered with each high school counselor to ensure all seniors have education plans for after high school and have assistance with goal-setting.


    “There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a student achieve great things after they leave our program,” said McGowan. “That is why we do what we do, to ensure that our students can be a success after graduation and go on to live happy and productive lives.”

  • Spring Break

    Posted by Communication Services on 3/9/2018
    The B.E.S.T. Report
    Building Excellent Schools Together
    Expect ~ Relate ~ Innovate

    We made it to spring break! 
    I am so proud of the work of our GCISD team this semester. I have seen engaging teaching,  amazing professional development, expertly designed lessons using technology, successful extra-curricular activities and wonderful community involvement. Even the manner in which we have designed the tradition of “open house” has changed for the better. 
    Thank you to everyone for your part in the educational process. Whether you are in a support role or on the front lines in the classroom, your work is important. I know you are constantly thinking about how you can positively impact our students and community.
    Our work, though rewarding, is not easy. I hope you will take time next week to be with your family and friends, and return rested and recharged for the final push to the end of the year.
