Godley Independent School District - Empowering Students

Logo Title

Godley ISD hosted business and industry professionals at a partnership breakfast for the school district’s career and technical program on December 14, 2022, at Godley High School.

Superintendent Dr. Rich Dear kicked off the meeting to explain continued growth in student enrollment.  Student numbers have increased an average of 7% annually, but that growth rate could increase to 15% each year over the next few years.  With rapid growth, the district could soon add 700-800 students each school year. Demographers predict that the district will add nearly 900 new students in the near future and 5,000 over the next ten years. 

Nikki Nix, the CTE director, highlighted the school district’s program, which includes connecting students to careers and post-secondary education, providing real-world experience and preparing students for the workforce.

GHS currently offers classes in eight of 14 career clusters adopted by the Texas Education Agency:

  • Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources

  • Arts, AV Technology & Communications

  • Business, Marketing & Finance

  • Education & Training

  • Health Science

  • Information Technology

  • Manufacturing

  • Transportation, Distribution & Logistics

There are numerous programs of study within each cluster.  In addition, students may participate in a variety of student organizations such as Godley FFA, DECA, and HOSA.

As the school district continues construction on a four-story CTE center just north of the high school and football field, Nix plans ongoing development of age-appropriate programs for elementary and middle school students, capstone experiences that include student-led enterprises as well as internships, and certifications.

Nix challenged attendees to serve as a mentor, subject matter expert, guest speaker, mock interviewer and in other ways to support students.  The school district is also seeking to partner with businesses for student internships, practicums and capstone experiences.  This will help grow the next generation of leaders and help Godley as the community needs highly-trained professionals.
