Thank a School Board Member

January is School Board Recognition Month and Groesbeck ISD is joining other districts across the state to thank these community volunteers for their commitment and contributions to our public schools.

“School board members serve countless hours working to make public education the best it can be for every child,” said Interim Superintendent, Bill Tarleton. In a climate of change and challenge, they develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues that affect the entire community and the lives of individual students. They bear responsibility and oversight in Groesbeck ISD for approximately 1865 students in grades PK3 to 12th; 295 employees; and four campuses.

“Preparing today’s students to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow is a tremendous task. As elected officials, school board members are the voice of their communities, serving first and foremost in the best interest of our schoolchildren,” said Tarleton.

“We proudly salute these education advocates as they provide vision and leadership for student achievement, academic programs, district funding, and school facilities. Their service ensures that decisions about local public schools are made by those most familiar with the needs of our community’s children and families,” said Tarleton. “These dedicated individuals deserve recognition and thanks for their unfailing commitment to the continuing success of our students now and in the future,” he said.

The men and women serving Groesbeck ISD are Mika Morgan, Randy Hunter, Bridgett Jackson-Tatum, Tom Sutton, Aslone Foy, Ronnie Ferguson and Bill David Sadler.

“Great leadership always begins with a willing heart, a positive attitude, and a desire to make a difference. Please join us as we applaud these local leaders for helping our kids soar to success,” Tarleton said.

Stakeholder Feedback on Developed Turnaround Plan Prior to Public Hearing and Board of Trustees Approval

House Bill (HB) 1842 is comprehensive legislation related to districts, charter schools, and campuses, specifically campus turnaround plans.  After a campus has been identified as unacceptable for two consecutive years, the campus must develop and submit to the agency a turnaround plan explaining the campus’ systemic approach to producing significant and sustainable gains in achievement and a Met Standard rating within two years.

Texas Educators Care Enough to VoteThe GISD Board of Trustees signed a Resolution to encourage District employees and eligible students to participate in the election process.  “Educators and their allies think about the 5.4 million kids in Texas schools every moment of every day, but the moment when they have the most power is when they cast their vote!  Share the Oath with: teachers, counselors, administrators, cafeteria workers, bus drivers, custodians, aides, school board trustees, PTA members, other district employees and their families, and community members. All of these people are considered educators as they support and enrich the educational experience of our children.” from the Texas Association of Community Schools letter regarding Texas Educators Vote Update (10/19/2017).
