Texas Education Agency Ratings
The Texas Education Agency released accountability ratings for districts and schools in Texas today. More information is posted on our website: www.georgetownisd.org/2019ratings.
How to become a volunteer and mentor in our schools
GISD is always in need of volunteers and mentors! The volunteer program is a great way to get involved with a variety of programs within GISD. The mentor program provides an opportunity for community members to meet one-on-one with a student once a week during the lunch hour. If you are a current volunteer or mentor, GISD is now running background checks automatically, which means you will not need to reapply this year. When you are approved or if more information is needed, you will receive an email notifying you of your background check status. If you are interested in becoming a new volunteer or mentor, please fill out an application today.
2019-2020 UIL Eligibility Calendar
