  • Technology Center Wins Design Award

     

    TECC wins award
     The GCISD Technology Education and Career Center (TECC) has won the prestigious Learning by Design 2014 Outstanding Project Award. Huckabee, the design firm behind the TECC, submitted the building for consideration.
     
    The TECC is one of two specialized learning centers that received this honor. A panel of judges evaluates projects based on interior and exterior photos, a written statement of challenges and solutions and the floor and site plans.

     

    The judges were impressed by how well the TECC created an independent environment for students from the two high schools to come together, the state of the art technology and the overall collegiate feeling of the building.

     

    Learning by Design is the premiere source for education design, and has a twice yearly publication that features the best of the best in education design.

  • GCISD named 2015 Leader in Excellence Award Winner
     
    Grapevine-Colleyville ISD has been selected as a Skyward 2015 Leader in Excellence Award winner. According to Skyward, GCISD received this award for demonstrating that the district "is improving education by using Skyward to move and inspire people with new ideas and initiatives."
     
    "This award is a special recognition for the incredible work we do daily to find ways to prepare students for college," said Emberly Spillman, GCISD director of counseling services. "We strive to improve our effectiveness and efficiency and Skyward has recognized our efforts."
     
    GCISD families use Skyward to access grades, assignments, attendance, schedules, emergency information, and more. This year, the district also implemented the Arena Scheduling process for high school course selections through the Skyward system. Employees also use Skyward to access their personnel information.
     
    GCISD will be recognized at the 2015 iCon, Skyward's national conference in Florida, during the event's opening remarks.

B.E.S.T. Report

  • Dedication to Success

    Posted by Communication Services at 12/12/2014
    I love hearing about the success of our students and staff! In the past few days alone, we have received several bits of good news about a few of our students, former students, and staff that highlight the great work happening in GCISD. Here are some highlights...
    • Abishek Kulshreshtha, the 2011 Valedictorian for GHS, has been named a Rhodes Scholar! Wow, what a high honor – and the first of its kind for a student from GCISD.
    • CHHS senior Anna Walsh was announced as the All-Area Player of the Year for volleyball.
    • We learned this week that Namita Saraf, a GHS junior, earned a perfect score on the PSAT.
    • Our counseling team was notified that GCISD was named a Skyward 2015 Leader in Excellence, an award given to districts that are developing innovative ways to streamline processes and provide even more support to students through scheduling.
    Recognizing award-winning students, staff and graduates is important to building community support and pride in our schools. It also is vital to understand that this success did not come easily. Sometimes we look at successful people and think that things come easily for them, but the opposite is true. It’s the successful person who practices that extra hour or two a day. It’s the successful student who studies and thinks just a little bit more or takes advantage of every opportunity for tutorials (even though they already have an A). It’s the successful teacher or administrator who is constantly thinking about improving our processes or lessons for students, even though we already have a great school district.
     
    And success doesn’t happen overnight. Somewhere across our district, there is a second-grader working math problems on her own with her iPad so she can become an engineer. Somewhere in our extra-curricular programs, there is a 6th grader – new to band this year – who is putting in additional practice time on his trumpet to become the next Wynton Marsalis. Somewhere in our schools, there is a teacher, coach, principal or librarian who is constantly searching for a new method or idea for students so they learn even more. Hard work and extra effort make champions, and we’ve got a ton of champions in GCISD!
     
    Thank you for your hard work and for continuing to champion our students and programs. Enjoy your weekend!
     
    BEST,
    RR
    Dr. Robin Ryan
    GCISD Superintendent of Schools
