Parents and Interested Citizens,
On behalf of the Giles County School Board and the School System, I want to welcome you to the GCSS education family. We have a great team of educators, administrators, and support staff dedicated to continuous improvement in student performance and success. As a school system, we believe we can provide an outstanding educational experience and opportunity for every child who enters our doors.
Regardless of our position, you are critical to the success of the Giles County Schools. Our bus drivers are the first and last face our children see every day. Our custodial and maintenance staff makes sure that children and staff have a safe, clean, and comfortable environment in which to work and attend school. Our teachers are the single most important variable in the educational success of our children. Our Administrators support and guide the instructional process and safety/security of our schools. Our educational assistants provide the support needed for teachers and administrators to do their jobs. Our food service staffs provide high-quality meals to children so that they can learn every day.
This website will provide you with important information. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to call me or email me.
Again thank you for your commitment to the children of Giles County School System. I look forward to getting to know each of you as we move forward, making our school's system one of the best in the state and the nation.
Phillip J. Wright
Giles County School System Director of Schools
