65% of respondents disagree or strongly disagree that “Grapevine-Colleyville ISD is headed in the right direction.”
After earning a spot for four years in a row, GCISD did NOT get awarded a place in the Dallas Morning News Top 100 Places to Work this year. The award is based entirely on feedback from employees, which makes the loss even more devastating. The divisive climate, attacks on teachers and librarians, disregard of student, parent, and teacher voice, and consolidation of jobs following elimination of key positions is taking its toll. And now the metrics are beginning to follow.
Call to Action! GCISD woke up to learn that their award winning Superintendent announced his “retirement” while interestingly the three experienced trustees are attending the TASA/TASB Convention and none of the four inexperienced members are in attendance- despite voting themselves delegates and pushing out far more experienced trustees.
How long has President Ford and the new majority had this planned?
The next phase of the master plan to take down GCISD as we know it has commenced. DM us if you are ready to join the fight to elect the trustees that GCISD deserves in May.
Message to GCISD parents:
I’m reaching out to you today to share some bittersweet news: After 38 years in public education, I am making plans to retire from GCISD in 2023, pending Board approval. While I will continue to serve as Superintendent through the remainder of the fall semester, and remain an employee through next August to assist with the transition in leadership, I am making this announcement now to allow our Board of Trustees time to begin the selection process for a new Superintendent. This announcement will be listed as an agenda item for Monday’s Board meeting, and I wanted to ensure you heard this news directly from me.
It’s been an honor to serve the incredible families and community of GCISD the past 13 years. GCISD is a true destination district with outstanding programs, facilities, and staff, and our students have reached tremendous heights as a result. As we begin to plan for this next chapter of our district, I am looking forward to seeing GCISD staff and students continue to achieve excellence.
