GCISD Named a Top 100 Place to Work
Posted on 11/01/2018

Grapevine-Colleyville ISD has been named a 2018 Top 100 Place to Work by the Dallas Morning News. GCISD ranked 18th in the "large companies" category which includes companies with 500 or more employees. Additionally, GCISD is the highest-ranked of the three school districts that earned Top 100 distinction.

Each Spring, the Dallas Morning News solicits nominations for the Top 100 Places to Work competition. Anyone can nominate a company — a worker, the CEO, even someone outside the company. Companies are graded in performance in leadership, sense of mission, career opportunities, culture, and pay and benefits.

After employers are informed of their nomination, the company’s workers are sent a 21-statement form and they’re asked to rank the statements on a scale. They’re then asked how important each statement is to them.

Answers from 78,710 employees at 298 participating Dallas-Fort Worth companies to determine the rankings this year.

“More than being recognized in the community as a top workplace, what means the most to me is that this was based on feedback given by our employees,” GCISD Superintendent Dr. Robin Ryan said. “I’ve always known that GCISD was a special place, and it’s clear that our employees feel the same way too.

“We have a tremendous culture and we are all working towards one common purpose - providing the best educational experience possible for our students. But we also recognize that it is important to provide the best work environment possible for our employees.”
