Due to the demand for continuation of the adult literacy program at GISD and desire to keep the service local, Edison Principal Pablo De Santiago reached out to North Central Texas College Gainesville campus to continue the program for Fall 2016. NCTC accepted the challenge to offer these classes for free to Cooke county residents and have opened up two class sessions for this fall semester.
GISD is able to report that each campus within the district has achieved Met Standard, the highest rating schools can earn on the state’s accountability system, and the district as a whole exceeded targets in all four indexes. Congratulations to the students, teachers, and parents on a successful year at GISD!
