Is my information confidential?
Because GISD is a public entity, your application is considered a public document and is subject to disclosure, upon request.
What items should I have ready before beginning the application process?
You will need your education history, work history information, references and reference phone numbers, your driver's license number, and a cover letter and resume in Word format if you would like to submit them with your application (optional, but recommended).
What if I hold an out-of-state teaching certificate or credential?
Applicants with out-of-state certificates or credentials should go to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) website for information regarding certification based on credentials from outside of Texas and the application procedures. For questions, please contact TEA at 512-463-9734.
Due to the No Child Left Behind Highly Qualified Teacher Standards, all teachers hired by GISD must be highly qualified in the core content area they will teach (Math, English, Special Education, Science, Social Studies, Dance, Art, Music, Theatre Arts, and all Foreign Languages). GISD will not offer employment to anyone from out-of-state that has not applied for a Review of Credential (ROC), a Texas One Year Certificate (OYC), and passed the appropriate content exam.
