The Georgetown Independent School District Board of Trustees named Justin Del Bosque as the new principal for Forbes Middle School during its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, April 17.
The district began exploring the development of a community-based accountability system last spring in an effort to develop a system that, while meeting general state standards, reflects the values of our community and also has meaning. When our community came together to develop the Learner Profile and refine the district’s strategic plan, you told us what matters to you. Now, we want you to tell us what questions you would need to have answered to indicate we are meeting your expectations. We hope to see you at this event.
