  GCISD is proud to introduce the GCISD Parent Technology Academy. 

The Parent Technology Academy is a place where parents can come to learn about current trends in social media, online websites, and tools their students use each day at school. This Academy is a place to pull back the curtain on the many apps and websites that students use on a day to day basis in and out of school. Ever wonder what all those apps are on your child’s phone?
