We thank you for being active in your student's education and helping them accomplish their goals. Parent support and involvement makes a positive difference by elevating student academic performance and increasing achievements.
GISD offers workshops throughout the year on effective parenting strategies, ideas on how to get more involved, and information to help your child be successful in school and in life. Past workshops have included topics such as:
- guide to STAAR
- parent involvement
- motivating children
- teen dating violence
- substance abuse
- anger management
Students with involved parents, no matter what their income or background, are more likely to:
- earn high grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
- pass their classes, earn credits, and be promoted
- attend school regularly
- graduate and go on to postsecondary education
Make sure you know all of our school policies and procedures.
Fall Parent Conferences
Specific dates will be scheduled in the fall and added to the RHS calendar for you to come in the evening to meet with your student's teachers. You can also visit the staff page for contact information for individual teachers to schedule conferences any time you have questions or concerns.
