Welcome to the New School Year!

I would like to welcome all of you to the new 2009 - 2010 School Year! I am very excited about serving you on the School Board for a second year. I would like to encourage you to get involved in our schools. We are always in need of volunteers, either for extra curricular activities, classroom activities, mentoring and tutoring. If you want to get involve but don't know what to do, please visit your school office.

I would also like to invite you to post comments on this Blog. You can suggest new issues for discussions, or post comments on current issues being discussed. The more involved we are in our School District, the better our district is going to be. To fulfill our mission to be "the Best", we need a strong community involvement. We also want to hear how are we doing. If there is something you love about our district, let us know. If there is something you feel we need to improve, we want to hear from you. All comments are welcome!

Acountability Ratings 2009

I want to congratulate GCISD for their great results in the latest Texas Education Agency Accountability Ratings. GCISD maintained its Recognize status, and three of our schools increased their ratings: Colleyville Heritage High School and Grapevine Middle School earned Recognized status, and Silver Lake Elementary earned Exemplary status. GCISD currently has ten Exemplary, five Recognized and three Academically Acceptable Schools.

Congratulations to all students, teachers and administrators for your hard work and great achievement!
