CG Families,

In this season of thankfulness, I want to say thank you for partnering with me, our staff, and our community to make CG a great place to be. We are so thankful for the guidance you bestow in your students, the tenacity you teach, and the care and concern you give to their success.

"The home is the first and most effective place to learn the lessons of life: truth, honor, virtue, self control, the value of education, honest work, and the purpose and privilege of life."--David O. McKay

Mrs. Cameron, Principal

We are so glad you are a part of our CG family!

2022 VATRE

CSISD VATRE information

On August 16, 2022, the CSISD Board of Trustees officially called for a voter-approved tax ratification election (VATRE) to be placed on the November ballot, with the additional revenue generated to be used for increasing CSISD employee compensation.

If the VATRE is approved, CSISD will have an additional $5 million to use toward increasing employee salaries. The CSISD tax rate would still be lowered 3.71 cents, which is 21.99 cents (or 15.7%) lower than it was in 2017-18.

The CSISD tax ratification election will be the very last item on your ballot.

Please click the links below (including the video) to learn more about the CSISD VATRE on the November 8, 2022 ballot.
