At GISD we strive to continuously improve our district through a cooperative effort between our schools, parents, and the community. As a means to provide an avenue for this conversation, Dr. Stewart is currently forming the 2018-19 Parent Advisory Committee The PAC is open to any parent or community member who is willing to provide feedback and input in to what our district is doing well and what can be improved upon. The PAC will meet four times throughout the year, with the second meeting being held on Tuesday, February 12 at 5:30pm at the Administration building. If you are interested in being a valuable member of this group, please contact Kay Neu at 940-665-4362 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
