GISD plans for uncertain future

Unprecedented times call for unprecedented procedures, and like Groesbeck ISD students, the GISD Board of Trustees were expected to embrace technology in a new way on Monday, April 20, holding their regularly scheduled meeting through a videoconference service called Zoom. Though Governor Greg Abbott announced on Friday, April 17 that Texas schools must remain closed for what’s left of the spring semester due to COVID-19, educators must continue providing instruction to students until the school calendar’s final day, and administrators must continue making decisions about the district’s future for the eventual return to normalcy.
