SAGE will be hosting our annual Candidate Forum featuring the candidates for GCISD Board of Trustees. The questions in this forum will focus solely on gifted and advanced academics topics.

All candidates were contacted by SAGE via email, text, phone, and/or Facebook Message between Feb. 19 and March 6, 2020. We attempted contact in an alternate way, multiple times, if a Candidate did not respond to our first outreach. An invitation was emailed and texted to all candidates, using the mobile number on their Candidate Filing Form, on March 6, 2020.
