• Annual Student Survey 2023

    In an effort to better support our students as they develop their Learner Profile traits, GISD conducts an annual student survey.  This brief survey is provided to students in grades three through eleven and asks students to reflect on themselves and their experiences which align to our GISD Learner Profile.  Parents/guardians may preview the survey by clicking on the link below and opt their student(s) out of taking the survey if they choose to do so.  The deadline to opt your student out of the survey is March 31st and campuses will begin to administer the survey during the month of April.
