  • GISD Parent Letter re: CDC Report on Vaping

    The Center for Disease Control and Prevention released news this past week that it has identified 153 cases of severe lung disease associated with vaping across 16 states, including Texas in the last 60 days. The FDA’s 2019 report notes that the number of teens vaping increased 78% in one year, to 21% of all teens who have reported vaping. The percent of Middle School students is also on the rise jumping 48% in just this past year. And honestly, we feel like these statistics are lower than reality.

  • Striving Towards a Better Accountability - 2019

    Today is the first day of the 2019-20 school year and I couldn’t be more excited… Not only are we coming off of the MOST SUCCESSFUL YEAR in virtually every way, we are about to welcome back over 1,000 students into classrooms and fields and courts and labs and band halls where they will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they belong, are valued and will find success this year! The state also released the A-F ratings today. While our district rating may have improved, my thoughts around the negative impact that rolling 12,000 indicators into 1 letter grade labeled on an entire school community have not. As superintendents, we WANT to be held accountable – but in a way that is well-rounded, appropriate for children and reflective of the hopes and dreams of our communities. And we in Gunter ISD will strive towards a better accountability until we achieve it. Click into this story for more thoughts on the A-F system.

  • GES Named a 2017 National Blue Ribbon School

    U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recognized Gunter Elementary School as 1 of 342 schools named National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2017. The recognition is based on a school’s overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. “National Blue Ribbon Schools are active demonstrations of preparing every child for a bright future,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to the honorees. “You are visionaries, innovators and leaders. You have much to teach us: some of you personalize student learning, others engage parents and communities in the work and life of your local schools and still others develop strong and forward-thinking leaders from among your teaching staff.”
