Introduction This presentation has been written to provide a set of standardized accounting procedures for all gate personnel of GISD Athletic Events. This covers all secondary schools of Granbury Independent School District. Administrators, principals, coaches, bookkeepers, and other ISD employees involved in the handling of these funds should become knowledgeable with the instructions prescribed in this presentation and in the available handbook. The directors, principals, teachers, and clerical staff are placed in a position of trust by parents, students, and spectators when funds are placed in their care. Adequate measures to control these funds will assure parents, students, and spectators that the funds are handled properly. Athletic game funds consist of money that is received from any sporting event held at Granbury ISD. These funds are obtained by the admission of fans participating in the sporting events.
Responsibilities of District Personnel and Required Training All Athletic Department, ISD, and campus personnel including bookkeepers who are involved in the disbursement of game boxes for games will not be able to maintain gates during athletic events. This would result in a conflict of the separation of duties. The Athletic Department will be responsible for assembling all game boxes for all home GISD Athletic Events with the exception of the middle school indoor athletic events. Those game boxes will be assembled by the designated personnel at each campus. At the designated time at each home GISD Athletic Event, all money collected, left over tickets, game papers, etc. must be given to the administrator on duty that has been determined by the Athletic Director. Anyone who is willing to work an athletic gate as a ticket seller or taker must review and understand all the rules and guidelines set forth by the GISD Business Office and GISD Athletic Department. They must also sign off on all the information in this presentation and the original signature page must be on file in the Athletic Department prior to the schedule event.

Tickets and Sections We sell General Admission for both adults and students to all home GISD Athletic Events. The ticket prices are set by the governing bodies which for all Middle School competition is Quad County and for all secondary competition is based on the current district classification that we are in. There is no reserved seating for home GISD Athletic Events with the exception of Varsity Football. Varsity Home Football games offer two reserved sections as well. Both our VIP Reserved Section and Section E Reserved tickets are sold in our Athletic Office prior to that weeks home football game and any leftover tickets for that week are sold at the main ticket gate the night of the Varsity Football game.
Passes We offer a Gold Card pass to our senior citizens that are 55 years and older. The cost of the Gold Card is $5 and can be purchased in the Athletic Office. The Gold Card allows only the card holder free admittance into any home GISD Athletic Event, however it does not provide them a free ticket in one of the reserved sections at the Varsity Football Games. No other form of ID is needed. The card holder simply shows their card at the gate, signs the Free Ticket Log, and goes in to cheer the Pirates and Lady Pirates to victory. We do offer all clergymen and clergywomen Gold Cards that will state their name followed by AND FAMILY. This is the only time the Gold Card will admit more than the card bearer free admittance. We also provide every student athlete with a Student Athlete Pass at the beginning of the school year. This pass will have the student athletes name on it and will allow only that athlete free admittance into any GISD Athletic Event. The student athlete must not only present their Student Athlete Pass, but also their current School ID to verify they are the card holder. The student athlete must also sign the Free Ticket Log to be able to attend the event. If the student athlete abuses this program, they are subject to losing their card privileges. Other passes that are accepted at all GISD Athletic Events include our Athletic District Passes which admit the card holder and 3 guests, the Texas High School Coaches Association Cards, the Texas Girls Coaches Association Cards, and other professional coaching memberships. All GISD Employees can show their current school year badge and receive free admittance to any home GISD Athletic Event, however it does not provide them a free ticket in one of the reserved sections at the Varsity Football Games.. The employee will need to sign the Free Ticket Log and list which campus/department they work for.
