Communication and Collaboration in GCISD

It's the board's responsibility to make decisions that are in the best interest of our students and community.  Alone, the board's view is limited.  However, when the board seeks community participation in discussions leading up to a decision, they can look at a situation from all angles.


Simply put, the board cannot make the right decision without input from parents, staff, students, and the community.  Therefore, my top priority will be to restore communication and collaboration within our board, district administration/staff, and the community we serve.


When it comes to communication and collaboration, it's important to know:

  • Your opinion matters when it comes to issues involving you, your kids, or your tax dollars.

  • If you take the time to contact me with a question or concern, you deserve a response.  I will not leave you wondering whether or not I received (let alone read!) your email.

  • As a board member, I will be open and honest about what is going on in the district. 

    • If we are in a situation that requires us to consider cutting a program or offering, I will seek community input in those discussions.

    • Communication about district successes and challenges should include accurate, sourced data. Sharing information in this manner will help our community decipher the truth from political nonsense.

  • Board decisions should not be a surprise.

    • The board must communicate decisions and how they came to them openly and honestly with the community.

    • Parliamentary procedures should not be used to stifle board debate.

    • Parents and the community should not have to develop special, inside connections to board/staff members to know what is happening in the district.
