Hundreds of students take part in No Place for Hate campaign

More than 850 students gathered in April on the football field at Tippit Middle School to show that the school is a No Place for Hate campus. Students arranged themselves to spell out "NP4H8" and "Tippit." The district was recognized as the first Central Texas school district to receive the No Place for Hate designation from the Anti-Defamation League in May 2011. The campaign works with school districts to foster respect of individual and group differences while challenging prejudice and bigotry.

Georgetown ISD responds to questions over health care proposal

Georgetown ISD has put a community Q&A on its website to answer questions regarding a recent proposal from Lone Star Circle of Care to provide school campuses with nurse practitioners and licensed clinical social workers.

The proposal presented to the superintendent would "staff nurse practitioners and licensed clinical social workers on campuses and could save the district more than $800,000 per year," according to a news release from the district.

The proposal will likely be discussed at the board of trustees May 21 meeting.
