Welcome to Granger Independent School District

Over 125 Years of Quality Public School Education

1887-2016

Mission Statement

Granger Independent School District will provide students with a quality education which enables every student to graduate high school with advanced skills for future success.

 

Top 7 Reasons Why Granger is One of the Best Small Schools in Central Texas

1. 100% graduation rate for three years in a row (2014 - 2016).

2. Small class sizes (Average 12-15 students per class K-12).

3. Technology rich district (1:1 for grades 6-12).

4. At or above STAAR state test scores.

5. At or above SAT state average (over 60% going directly to college).

6. Global Focus (Granger performs at or above world mean scores for math and science).

7. Free dual-credit opportunities for all students for both college courses and technical careers.

START DATE FOR THE 2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR WILL BE AUGUST 28TH.

A “District of Innovation” was being sought for Granger ISD over the past few months.  At the conclusion of the DOI process, the School Board voted not to move forward with the designation and flexibility of a “District of Innovation” by a 4-3 vote for the 2017-18 school year.  The site based committee had reviewed and considered several school calendars for the next school year with and without the designation of a DOI.   Calendar “B“ will now be the recommended school calendar for the 2017-18 school year.  This has been a great school year for Granger ISD.  We hope you have an awesome summer break, and we will look forward to seeing everyone at the start of our next school year on August 28th.

Update on District of Innovation Plan

Granger ISD is moving forward with its plan for becoming a District of Innovation.  On Wednesday, March 22, a special board meeting was held for a public hearing on the DOI and to approve a committee for developing a DOI Plan.  The school board voted 5-2 to move forward with the district looking at a DOI plan.  The board also voted 7-0 to approve the SBDMC as the DOI committee.

The SBDMC met on Thursday March 23rd and took up the DOI Plan.  The SBDMC committee voted 8-2 to move forward with District of Innovation and then voted 8-2 to accept the DOI plan as presented with flexibility for the start of school.  With the approval of the plan, the committee also voted 10-0 to recommend school calendar Option C, which is based off the DOI plan.  The DOI plan and school calendar C can be found on the links below.

TEA has been been informed of the Granger DOI plan, and we will have it posted on our web site for the next 30 days as required in the DOI process.  The DOI plan will then be presented to the school board on May 11th for their final approval of the plan.  The plan must receive 2/3rds vote of the school board to become a District of Innovation.
