Administrators in new places; and welcome two "new faces"
Several administrative changes at the central and campus levels are being made to reduce payroll costs, fill leadership roles and increase opportunities for employees. GCISD welcomes a new director of Transportation Services and a new principal at Timberline Elementary. In addition, five elementary and three middle school assistant principals will greet students, parents and faculties at different campuses in the coming year. Read more about administrative changes.
