Tales From the Schoolhouse
Off and Running!
Today wraps up the second full week of school. All students and teachers are beginning to settle into their new routines. Fall sports are in full swing. There are many opportunities for you to watch our students showcase their talents. I encourage you to come out and support these students. Under the upcoming events section is the link to the district calendar. All school events are posted on this calendar.

Adopted Tax Rate
The Glasscock County ISD Approved Tax Rate for the 2023-2024 School year is as follows:
Maintenance and Operations: $0.6992
Interest and Sinking (Bond Payment): $0.0708
Total Tax Rate: $0.77
This is a $0.19 decrease for last years rate of $0.96.
The decrease in rate is largely due to the the new legislation decreasing property taxes.

Grandparents Day Celebration
On Friday, September 8th, we invite all Grandparents to come eat breakfast and/or lunch at GCISD!
Mrs. Eubanks, our school counselor, will be introducing Ruby , a therapy dog in training, to our students and staff this school year. Both Ruby and Mrs. Eubanks will be receiving training on how to implement Ruby into our school. We believe dogs add value to situations where students need therapeutic intervention.
What are our students up to?
Our Ag students have been busy in the shop. Many of them are working on Ag Mech projects that will be entered in contests this winter.
Here are a few aerial photos of the construction projects taking place in the district.
