Gary W. Campbell High School 

Gary W. Campbell High School is the alternative school for Kaufman School District. Our accelerated curriculum allows students to complete graduation requirements at their own pace and provides an opportunity for them to graduate within four years of starting high school. Using a combination of online and teacher based instruction, GCHS provides students with a comprehensive, standards-based curriculum designed to meet each individual student’s needs. A low teacher to student ratio and individualized instruction helps to insure student achievement. All students wishing to attend GCHS must submit an application through the counselor on their home campus.

HS Parking Lot on Friday, March 20, 2015

Kaufman ISD PD and many other agencies will be conducting a DWI drill this Friday, March 20, 2015 at the Kaufman HS parking lot.  It will begin around 8:20-8:30 a.m. and last about an hour outside.  It will be very realistic, with Careflight, Kaufman FD and several law enforcement agencies conducting arrests, rescues and treating "injuries" of Kaufman Criminal Justice and JPA students.  Immediately following, there will be a program in the New Gym of the "funeral" of those lost to the DWI.  There will be media there video-taping the event.

I want everyone to know that this is a drill, in case you hear of this major accident involving a school bus and several other vehicles, on the student parking lot.  This is to bring awareness of the effects of drinking and driving and timed in conjunction with the Kaufman HS Prom.

Thank you!

It may surprise you to know that the Kaufman ISD does not pay for student breakfast or lunches! KISD contracts with a company named Chartwells to provide meals for students. Chartwells receives its funding through meal reimbursements from the National School Breakfast and Lunch program. Although Chartwell staff work in our cafeterias, they are not employees of the district.

It may also surprise you to know that school menus and snacks in schools are governed by the federal Department of Agriculture. This department recently issued new “Smart Snacks in School” standards which took effect in July. Under these standards most foods sold in schools will have limited fat, calories, sugar, and sodium and must have less than 200 calories. Most students feel that these regulations are too restrictive but nationwide, many parents feel that they are not restrictive enough!

Finally, you will really be surprised to learn that all KISD students in grades PK-6 will be provided FREE breakfasts and FREE lunches for the next school year! Again, no local tax dollars will be used to fund this program. These free meals are being provided by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, through the U.S. Department of Education’s Community Eligibility Provision. Students from low-income homes and students from wealthy homes will both be able to eat breakfast and lunch for free without filing income statements to qualify. Since this is the first year that school districts in Texas are eligible to apply, Kaufman ISD will be among the first districts in the state to take advantage of this program. Less paperwork and more meals for free? Now THAT’s a surprise!!

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Starting with the 2014-2015 school year ALL over-the-counter medication MUST have a doctors order to be given to a student DURING school hours. This medication will be given for 10 consecutive days only.

Medication taken for 10 consecutive days or less,

will be discarded if not picked up at the end of the 10 days.

This will apply to ANY over-the-counter medication brought to school during the school year. Medication should be given before or after school hours.

Forms can be picked up at your child’s campus or on-line on the district Health Services webpage at http://www.kaufmanisd.net/admin.cfm?tab=1.

If you have any questions please contact your campus Nurse.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
