Floyd Javier Fernandez Principal Armstrong Elementary School “I am looking forward to the next decade in GISD. With the increased focus on balanced literacy, advanced academics, Gilbreath-Reed Career & Technical Center opportunities, and career pathways at each high school, GISD is working on our present and looking to the future. This is why I #ChooseGarlandISD!” Teacher Schrade Middle School “I expect GISD to get students ready to take on the world with valuable life and educational skills—to prepare them for immediate employment after graduation or to go on for their four-year degree.” State Representative District 113 “GISD has gone through many changes over the last decade. Under Dr. López's direction, and with the infusion of funds from HB3 passed during the 86th Legislative Session, the future looks very bright. The district is establishing opportunities like the ACE campuses, which offer additional family and student support, to ensure student success. GISD stands ready to be one of the best districts in our state!” Facilitator Translation & Interpretation Services “Garland ISD has evolved into a powerful, exemplary school district with many amazing new programs and opportunities. Students can now experience hands-on learning while earning certificates and licenses to start their careers right after graduation or advance on their college credits. This prepares them for new, rapidly emerging industries for their future. Truly, there is no excuse not to achieve and succeed. Way to go, GISD.” Director Facilities Planning & Construction Services “I expect to see continued technology integration throughout the learning environment. I also see Garland ISD embracing virtual learning within the traditional brick and mortar school for all students. Our second grade students will be seniors in the year 2030, crazy when you think about it. These students will experience a GISD like no other, with innovative programs and opportunities yet to be developed.” Para una copia traducida, envíe un correo electrónico a A878@garlandisd.net.
