Godley Independent School District - Empowering Students

Logo Title

Godley ISD school board trustees held a public hearing on academic reports during the regular monthly meeting on March 27, 2023, at Godley High School. 

Chief Academic Officer Dr. Airemy Caudle reviewed the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) as well as state and federal report cards for the 2021-22 school year.  The reports included state accountability ratings for the district and campuses. Caudle explained how the school district is implementing the school district’s Community-Based Accountability System (CBAS) and evaluating district progress in several ways. CBAS pillars also are incorporated into annual district and campus improvement plans.

The board heard from Satterfield & Pontikes Construction Company regarding facility progress for Pleasant View Elementary School as well as projects at GHS.  Phase 2 projects at the high school include a four-story career and technical education center and a competition gymnasium - together, these additions will house over 40 classrooms and learning spaces. In addition, REEDER Construction reported on Phase 3 construction for the high school’s fine arts wing.

Board members approved a recommendation from the district facility naming committee for the future CTE Center to be “The WILD” (Wildcat Innovative Learning Destination).  The move will provide consistent branding for the facility as well as student enterprises within the building. 

Trustees approved the purchase of land of 16.6 acres for future school facilities.

For the future school district police department, the board adopted a resolution for the department’s formation.  Trustees also approved budget amendments to cover police department costs for the remainder of the fiscal year as well as a revised interlocal cooperation agreement with Johnson County for dispatching services. 

In personnel, trustees extended contracts for campus and district administrators.  The board also approved staffing proposals for the 2023-24 school year developed with budget and student enrollment projections. New staff positions include a net increase of twelve full-time employees, including elementary and middle school teachers, special education teachers and aides, school resource officers, program specialists and other support positions. Trustees also granted authority to Superintendent Dr. Rich Dear in order to facilitate hiring new personnel through August.

The board approved minutes from regular and special meetings as well as financial, investment and tax reports. Other actions included casting votes for the Region 11 Education Service Center board of directors and hearing a safety audit report.

School trustees have their next regularly scheduled board meeting on Monday, Apr. 24.
