1 August Highlights Grapevine – Colleyville ISD

2 District Highlights Grapevine-Colleyville ISD has maintained a rating of Recognized for 2011 under the state accountability system. In addition, 10 GCISD schools achieved the states highest rating of Exemplary. School and district ratings were released July 29 by the Texas Education Agency. The ratings are based on three measures: the TAKS, which is taken in the spring by Texas students in grades 3-11, a dropout rate for students transitioning from grade 7 to 8, and high school completion rate. GCISD retains Recognized status

3 District Highlights With the start of the school year, student lunch prices will increase by five cents in order to meet new USDA regulations. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 requires that the costs of meals increase to reduce the difference in the cost of a full-price student lunch and a free lunch. The new prices will be $2.05 for elementary students and $2.30 for secondary students. Breakfast and cost of meals under the free and reduced program will remain the same. Student lunch prices to increase
