GROESBECK ISD BOARD OF TRUSTEES
NAMES FINALIST FOR SUPERINTENDENT
The Groesbeck Independent School District (ISD) Board of Trustees, at its December 13, 2017, meeting, named Dr. James Cowley in Calhoun County ISD, as the finalist for superintendent. By law, the Board must now wait 21 days before voting to hire Dr. Cowley. Dr. Cowley is slated to replace retiring Superintendent Dr. Harold D. Ramm.
The Board has followed a lengthy process in determining the finalist. In October, the Board hired Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Executive Search Services to direct the search. A TASB consultant met with staff and community groups on October 24, 2017, to discuss desired characteristics of the new superintendent. The profile developed from these meetings was the yardstick used by the Board and consultants in evaluating the applicants for the position.
The Board selected six applicants for initial interviews. Three applicants were invited back for a second interview. With the second round of interviews completed, a committee of the Board visited Calhoun County ISD and reported back to the Board. The Board is scheduled to vote to offer a contract to Dr. Cowley on January 4, 2018.
Dr. Cowley has served as Superintendent of Calhoun County ISD since 2015; he oversees the business operations of the 4,000-student district.
The 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).

Groesbeck ISD Families! Gone are the days of filling out dozens of forms by hand at the start of every school year. GISD has made going back to school easier for new and returning families with Online Registration. Click on the PowerSchool icon below or visit Student Info, Registration.
Parents can now complete most of the required forms online. EVERY returning student will be assigned a “snapcode” that will be given out at the beginning of the school year – so please check with your child’s campus! New students do not need a snapcode to register for the first time. If you do not have access to a computer, please visit your child’s campus where one will be provided.
Groesbeck ISD has added a layer of security for students and staff at Groesbeck High School. The security measure is located at the front entrance. During school hours, visitors wishing to enter GHS must be let in through a set of doors equipped with a camera and locking mechanism.
To enter the high school, please press the button located on the box to the left of the front entry doors. Once you press the button, office staff will unlock the door and you may enter.
Safety and communication is a priority at Groesbeck High School. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to educate your children each day.
