Growing G-PISD: Economic Changes & Rising Student Enrollment

The landscape is changing across the Gregory-Portland area, and with it comes new opportunities and new students attending G-PISD. This school year alone we've seen student enrollment increase from 4,660 students on the first day of school in 2022 to more than 4,900 students as of January 2023 -- and climbing! 

In this episode, Guest Host and G-PHS Senior Skyla Martini interviews Superintendent Dr. Michelle Cavazos and School Board President Tim Flinn as they weigh in on the realized and anticipated growth in our district; the way we are partnering to educate, inspire, and empower through change; and the outcome of a recent Demographic Study performed to determine how much we are expected to grow as a community and district during the next 8-10 years.
