In July 2015, GCISD formed a Facility Innovation and Readiness Stakeholder Team (FIRST) to study and prioritize ways to create the best possible learning environment for GCISD students.

This facility planning team comprised of parents, community constituents, and campus and district staff met for over seven months to consider the district’s financial position and strategic plan as it relates to programs for students, facilities, infrastructure, technology, security, etc. This process was open and transparent. FIRST members studied over 3,000 line items of proposed facility projects and worked to prioritize what they deemed most important into a final recommendation that was presented to the Board of Trustees for consideration.
