News & Announcements

Inclement Weather

The possibility of wintery weather is right around the corner. We understand that the weather varies throughout west Texas and even within our county. School administration will keep a close watch on upcoming weather. Decisions regarding weather will be made in a timely manner using the best resources available. The start time for weather delays will be 10:30am. This will allow us the required four hours of instruction, and it also will allow more time for road conditions to improve. In the event of a delay, cancellation, or time change, you will receive a text from JGISD administration from the Remind 101 account. If the weather is questionable, school and school-sponsored events will proceed as scheduled, unless notified otherwise. If we still have school or an event, and you deem it unsafe in your area of the district, please do not attempt to travel. For school closures and delays you may also check: JGISD website - CapRock TV – KTXS – KCBD – KSSL – KTXS – KJTV - KLBK To sign up and get JGISD Remind 101updates: Text "@jgisd" to 81010

Refusal of Entry

Commissioner Rule regarding refusal of entry or ejection of individuals (19 T.A.C. 103.1207) requires, among other things, the following: “A school district shall post on the district's Internet website and each district campus shall post on any Internet website of the campus a notice regarding the provisions of this section, including the appeal process set forth in subsection (h) of this section”. This new Commissioner Rule became effective on August 24, 2018. Consequently, Region 17 school districts will want to comply with the posting requirement as soon as they can.

District of Innovation

The District of Innovation concept, passed by the 84th Legislative Session in House Bill 1842, gives traditional independent school districts most of the flexibilities available to Texas’ open-enrollment charter schools.
