Grapevine-Colleyville ISD


Our Superintendent of Schools is Dr. Robin Ryan. Dr. Ryan announced his plan to retire in December 2022.

The GCISD Board of Trustees sets policy for Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School Districts:

Contact the Trustees and Superintendent

Each Trustee has been designated as a liaison to several campuses and/or committees. Here is the liaison list for 2022-2023.

Email is an easy way to contact one or all of our Trustees and/or the Superintendent: shannon.braun@gcisd.net, becky.stjohn@gcisd.net, tammy.nakamura@gcisd.net, kathy.spradley@gcisd.net, coley.canter@gcisd.net, casey.ford@gcisd.net, jorge.rodriguez@gcisd.net, robin.ryan@gcisd.net

More than 8 in 10 Americans don’t think books should be banned from schools for discussing race and criticizing U.S. history, for depicting slavery in the past, or, more broadly for political ideas they disagree with.
“This movement to ban books is deeply undemocratic, in that it often seeks to impose restrictions on all students and families based on the preferences of those calling for the bans and notwithstanding polls that consistently show that Americans of all political persuasions oppose book bans,” PEN America said, citing a CBS News poll.

Over 1,600 books were banned in U.S. school districts in one year – and the number is increasing: CBS News
