Happy School Board Appreciation Month!

January is School Board Recognition Month and Gunter ISD would love to celebrate and recognize the leadership for our administration and our district. We have some amazing individuals who have invested in our students through the gift of their time and dedication. Each trustee is a locally elected volunteer and they have committed to making sure our schools are successful and prepared. The GISD School Board meetings are generally held during the third week of each month at 6:00pm in the administration building. The January meeting is scheduled for January 22nd.

Please join Gunter ISD in celebrating our School Board and a very big THANK YOU to these 7 incredible leaders!
