Galena Park Students Have a Strong Voice on District Issues

Galena Park ISD

The Superintendent’s Student Advisory Board (SAB) gathered together at the GPISD Administration Building for their first meeting of the year.  The twenty-five high school SAB members from the district bring their unique perspectives on issues related to student performance, safety and security, and dropout prevention. The members of the SAB demonstrate hard work, initiative, and an admirable commitment to making Galena Park I.S.D. the best it can be.  These students set an outstanding example for their peers, and their insight is invaluable in providing our students with the best education possible.
