Rodriguez has served on GCISD’s board of trustees for 18 years. Rodriguez cited work responsibilities and an increased need for traveling as his reasons for stepping away from the board of trustees in a few months.
“I want to thank our voters for allowing me to serve our students, staff, and our GCISD community,” Rodriguez said during the meeting. "It is a privilege to have represented GCISD during this period of tremendous achievement, and I thank you for allowing me to serve.”
During his time on the board, Rodriguez played a role in opening iUniversity Prep and Collegiate Academy, passed three bond elections, earned the designation of 2018-19 Honor Board for the state of Texas and led the district through its strategic plan, he said.
Rodriguez’s seat will be filled following May elections. He encouraged anyone who had interest in running for his seat to do so “for the right reasons.”
“Your main role and responsibility as a trustee is to provide every student in GCISD with the necessary tools and resources to be successful, not just for college, career, or the military, but for life,” he said.
