Mrs. Clarissa A. Ibañez, RGCGISD Director of Student Assessment together with other RGCGISD Campus Testing Personnel attended the 37th Annual Texas Assessment Conference on November 7th-9th. Celebrating its 37th year in 2022, the Texas Assessment Conference remains the only statewide conference dedicated to providing the latest information on assessment, testing, and accountability in education — elementary, secondary, and post-secondary. Attendees received the latest information from state agencies and policymakers, who shared the best implementation practices in schools, districts, colleges, and universities. They were able to meet and confer with Texas Commissioner of Education, Mike Morath who addressed the group and focused on how educators need to keep working hard to get better for our students. Morath emphasized the importance of assessment and accountability and specified "If you don't measure it, you don't know what to improve." He reflected on the impact of COVID-19 and how it created an unprecedented education disruption across the state with local school districts, policymakers, and other external stakeholders looking to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) for guidance and support. He stressed and reiterated that TEA is dedicated to providing increasing levels of support to all educators, students, and families. Commissioner of Education Mike Morath emphasized how the agency continues to support Texas school districts. The RGCGISD Testing Staff also attended many informative and enlightening sessions led by Mr. Jose Rios, TEA Executive Director for Student Assessment and his staff. In those particular, sessions and they were able to gain memorable insight and valuable information to empower and prepare everyone at their respective campuses for all upcoming state-mandated assessments. Mrs. Ibañez and all the Campus Testing personnel who attended the informative and memorable conference want to thank Mr. Adolfo Peña, Jr., Superintendent of Schools and The RGCGISD School Board of Trustees for allowing them the opportunity to attend and bring back such valuable information!
From our Superintendent, Adolfo Pena Jr, our entire School Board of Trustees, and everyone at RGCGISD, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the men and women who have proudly put on a uniform and served our country. It was Charles B. Rangel who said, “Honoring the sacrifices many have made for our country in the name of freedom and democracy is the very foundation of Veterans Day.” We salute you and please know you have our everlasting gratitude. "The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude." — Jeff Miller

Reminder to our Sensational RGCGISD Employees: As stipulated during RGCGISD's Regular School Board Meeting held on September 10, 2022 every single one of our full time employees will be receiving a one thousand dollar ($1,000) stipend and every one of our tutors and substitutes will be receiving a five hundred ($500) stipend on November 11, 2022, before we release for Thanksgiving holidays. As relayed in said board meeting, our Superintendent and School Board of Trustees value all of our amazing employees and the devotion they have shown to their crafts. It is due to this significant contribution that the district earned an “A” rating from TEA for the first time in history in Academics and Finances. RGCGISD has been able to increase our enrollment almost back to normal after the pandemic, becoming one of the first school districts in the valley to accomplish this feat. The district is also in the process of building and renovating many buildings that will serve their purpose for years to come for our students. We have so many reasons to celebrate, and our personnel and staff are at the forefront. We hope that this stipend will ensure the beginning of a wonderful holiday season. Once again, a most sincere thanks to every one of our magnificent employees.
