Gary ISD

Written by Dr. Richard Ballenger.

Starts the year with administrative changes

The Gary ISD is expecting a great year for the 2012-2013 school year. The administration of the district has changed from last year. Dr. Richard W. Ballenger has been designated as Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction, and Counseling. Mr. Tony Wood is the new secondary principal for grades 7-12 along with his duties as Athletic Director. Mrs. Elizabeth Ballenger shall be serving as principal of the elementary school, grade PK-6.

Each summer the staff spends a great deal of time reviewing and updating all school handbooks and constitutions. There have been exciting plans made for the school staff development beginning August 12, 2012 through August 24, 2012. The district is sprucing up the campus with some new landscaping and interior painting. The new slogan for the 2012-2013 school year is “The Power of One…Dancing with the STAARS (our partner).”

School begins for students on August 27, and, as always each year, a “Meet the Teacher Night” is scheduled for August 21, from 5:30pm until 7:00pm. The Gary ISD administration as always is looking forward to a great new school year.
