Administration » Welcome



Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

Orange Grove Independent School District is full of opportunities; a great place to form relationships, learn new things, and prepare for future endeavors. Our school district offers a full range of experiences in a rural setting, yet we are close by larger communities...please consider joining us here in OGISD.

As the new superintendent, there are many things to learn about our wonderful school district. However, our focus will never change...improving levels of student achievement and enhancing the quality of the public school experience for each student.

OGISD pledges to provide each student with the kind of educational experiences that promote individual growth and development. We must continue to strive to build a student learner profile that not only demands excellence in all academic areas, but provides students with the opportunity to participate in a wide range of high-quality activities - athletics, music, agriculture, FCCLA, and other pursuits.

We realize that the public school experience centers on academic performance, as it should, but we also know from personal experience that school can be so much more. We want to provide “more” for each student that walks through our doors. Developing well-rounded young people is an incredible task, one that the employees of OGISD are ready to take on.

Randy Hoyer, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
