    CAC Presentation update

    Following a six-month process and based on feedback from the community, the Citizens Advisory Committee shared their recommendation to the #GISDboard for a future bond election. 

    The committee reviewed enrollment projections, bonding capacity and walked through 21 projects for consideration to address growth & capacity, aging and evolving facilities, technology and safety and security, fine arts and athletics.

    The Board of Trustees will consider the committee’s recommendation. If they decide to call for a bond election, they must do so by mid-August for the projects to be placed on the November ballot. 

    Safe School Plan Update 

    The Board of Trustees reviewed a draft of our Safe School Plan for the coming year. That plan will be shared with families, partners, and the community for review and feedback.

    High School Summer School

    Week four of summer semester for high school started on July 19 along with week one of JumpStart for elementary and middle school students. Learning opportunities for students are designed to help them prepare for the upcoming school year.
