"The purpose of education is to impart the knowledge, concepts, processes, and attitudes necessary for all students to successfully function in society. Education recognizes the characteristics unique to each individual and provides a process for development and expression of each student’s innate potential and talents. The Curriculum and Instruction team's goal is to provide service and support for the teachers and students of the Galveston Independent School District."

The Galveston Independent School District Curriculum and Instruction Department is dedicated to the success of all students and is committed to excellence in teaching and learning.  Collaborating with our instructional staff, the curriculum department focuses on research-based instructional best practices and works to provide a rigorous curriculum designed to ensure innovative, customized learning opportunities for all students.
