"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."
