GISD Future Readiness Fair Sept. 24

Plan your session schedules for the first GISD Future Readiness Fair, scheduled to take place on September 24th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at East View High School. Visit the Future Readiness Fair Sched site to view all seminar sessions and to plan your evening. All GISD high school students and their parents are encouraged to attend to learn more about college, career, and military options. The fair will feature college, career, and military representatives, and there will be mini-seminar sessions available for students and their parents to learn more about career paths, college admissions, and military service from guest presenters. Contact your high school College, Career, and Military Readiness Specialist for more information.

September 23 - Student Holiday

GISD campuses will be closed for professional development. Classes will resume on Tuesday, September 24. Enjoy the long weekend!

Volunteers and Mentors

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. In order to volunteer in our schools, it is required that all volunteers complete a Georgetown ISD background check. When you are approved or if more information is needed, you will receive an email notifying you of your status. You can always check out our FAQ for additional information. If you are interested in becoming a new volunteer or mentor, please fill out an application today.
