Grand Central Station

What is Grand Central Station (GCS)?

Grand Central Station is an award winning program that helps struggling students in a learning lab setting. This intensive academic intervention program offers a variety of services for qualifying students. Students receive the level of support they need across the curriculum to help them become successful, independent learners. As GCS teachers we collaborate with the classroom teachers and are prepared to work with students to help them improve their study and organizational skills as well.

The GPMS Grand Central Station lab is located in room F118.

Family Access from Skyward is a Web-based information and communication center designed to provide parents and guardians with the answer to, "How has my child been doing in school?" Your student's grades can be accessed 24 hours a day with the convenience of your own home computer. You can login anytime under "Quick Links" on this website (or CLICK HERE for the direct link from this location). If you need to sign up for Family Access, please contact the office at 361-777-4042.

Once the form has been completed, each parent/guardian will need to bring the completed form and a government-issued picture ID to any campus on which you have a student enrolled. By signing and returning the Family Access Application Form, you are authorizing Gregory-Portland ISD to provide you with one login and password for all of your students in GPISD. Your login and password will be provided to you by the campus where you return the Application Form. Please allow up to two weeks for provision of the login and password.

Not only will you be able to access your student's current average, you will also be able to view the list of assignments with grades when you click on a particular average. This is a valuable tool to help you support your child in his/her efforts to stay organized and keep up with missing assignments.
