Safety Update from the GCISD Board of Trustees

An Update on the 2018 GCISD Trustee Election
Updated May 21, 2018

After the results were canvassed in the May 5, 2018 GCISD Trustee Election, a request for recount was filed for Place 2. The recount took place Friday, May 18 and Monday, May 21 and GCISD delegated oversight of the recount to Tarrant County Elections Administration officials.

The recount showed that the necessary majority was not received by any candidate for Place 2 and will therefore require a runoff election between Amy Putnam and Becky St. John. The results of the recount will be canvassed Thursday, May 24 at 4:30 p.m. After the results are canvassed, the District will order a runoff election. The runoff election will take place June 16, 2018, with early voting from June 4 to June 12, 2018.


After counting provisional and overseas military ballots, Tarrant County Elections Officials have notified Grapevine-Colleyville ISD that Becky St. John has secured the necessary majority in order to secure Place 2 on the GCISD Board of Trustees. The results are as follows:
