A Message From Our Superintendent, Dr. Angi Williams..
Each January is designated Board Appreciation Month in Galena Park I.S.D. This month-long celebration of Board service cannot begin to adequately spotlight the excellent efforts of our School Board on behalf of all District stakeholders.
Public service is essential to provide needed advocacy and representation of citizens throughout our state and nation. In Galena Park I.S.D., we are blessed with a dedicated Board of Trustees who serve the interests of students, educators, employers and taxpayers in the communities that make up our school district. The Board tirelessly serves in numerous ways, including monthly meetings, ceremonial duties, approval of policies and evaluation of the Superintendent of Schools.
Please join me in saying, “Thank You,” to these dedicated public servants, not just in this month designated to acknowledge their efforts, but throughout the months and years they give to support Excellence in Galena Park I.S.D.
