Georgetown ISD Health & Wellness Clinic will Remain Closed Through January

 

The re-opening of the Georgetown ISD Health & Wellness Center provided by Lone Star Circle of Care (LSCC) has been delayed until January 31, 2023. Until that time, LSCC has committed to working with GISD families to ensure timely appointment availability in line with what you have grown to expect from our GISD clinic. Area clinics in Georgetown will continue to serve as the contingency clinics during this period. Our GISD clinic’s front desk phone line will continue to be redirected during this time. Lone Star Circle of Care apologizes for the delay, and we appreciate your patience during this time. We look forward to the reopening of our GISD/LSCC Clinic at Richarte High School. 

GISD 2023-24 Secondary Course Guide Updated

In an effort to continually provide robust learning experiences for our secondary students, GISD annually reviews its programs and course offerings while making updates that align with our district’s mission and vision. These course offerings are published each year in our GISD Secondary Course Guide. Having just concluded this process, the 2023-2024 GISD Secondary Course Guide is now available on the GISD Teaching and Learning website.  

We encourage families who have students in GISD secondary schools to orient themselves to the Course Guide which not only lists all course offerings for middle and high school students, but also provides a number of additional useful information to help students get the fullest from their secondary school experience and prepare them for their post-high school plans.
