Heather Stoner Announced as Director of Operations and School Safety
The GISD Board announced during its meeting Monday, June 15, that Heather Stoner has been selected to serve as Director of Operations and School Safety for the district.
Heather brings 22 years of experience in education to her new role. She currently serves as principal of Lago Vista High School, where she has served for the past six years. Prior to that, she served as principal of Lago Vista Elementary School, as an assistant principal, a teacher and coach. As an elementary principal, Heather was selected in 2014 to lead the high school into a newly constructed facility. In her time as principal in a smaller district, she has worn many hats and been involved in developing many district systems and processes such as the district-level safety response team. Her experience as both an elementary and high school principal, as well as her ability to build and maintain effective communication systems and relationships, will make her a valuable addition to GISD.
In her new role, Heather will be responsible for coordinating Title IX (sexual harassment and discrimination) for the district, as well as designing and implementing systems and collaboratively supporting safety initiatives. She will work closely with the Georgetown Police Department and our School Resource Officers to ensure student safety and equitable practices.
Heather earned her bachelor’s degree in mathematics from St. Edward’s University and a Master of Education: Educational Administration from Texas State University. She is currently pursuing her doctorate in Educational Leadership from UT-Austin. Heather will begin in her new role on July 1.
