Superintendent's Message

On behalf of the Gatesville ISD’s Board of Trustees and the outstanding staff of the Gatesville Independent School District, I welcome you. This district has a long tradition of academic excellence, coupled with a strong commitment to the success of every student. Our mission is to provide all students with programs of excellence that instill a passion for life-long learning, while preparing them for the challenges of tomorrow. We are committed to preparing our students for their future by providing high-quality, well-rounded educational programs both in and out of the classroom. While we cannot predict the future, it is essential that we support our students in developing the knowledge and skills that will guide them on their journey as lifelong learners.

As parents and community members you are critical partners in the education of our students. It may be a cliché, but it truly does take a village to educate a child. We appreciate and value the trust that parents have placed in our staff and we accept the responsibility of ensuring that all students graduate college and world ready. We are committed to developing in each student the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to ensure many paths to a successful future. Our number one priority will always be the success of every student.

We are very proud of the many successes of our schools, but recognize that success requires continuous improvement. We cannot stand on past laurels if we are to prepare our students for their future.

I look forward to meeting and working with you on behalf of our students. Please feel free to contact me with questions and concerns at epenrod@gatesvilleisd.org
 
Sincerely,

Eric Penrod
