The mission of Galveston ISD is to Educate, Engage and Empower EACH student for a life of Excellence
Galveston ISD offers charter schools, Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) programs, magnet schools, and a Mega-Magnet High School with four smaller learning communities. Students are aided by open enrollment as well as the absence of school zones throughout the district.
Galveston ISD is a Schools of Choice District. The Schools of Choice model allows families options of which school to attend within a school system. It is one of the most unique school systems in Texas in that it allows parents to send their children to the school that best serves their interests and needs. There are no school zones and transportation is provided to students to attend the school of their choice.
Galveston Independent School District is currently experiencing a shortage of qualified bus drivers. The driver shortage is unfortunately not exclusive to GISD.
Drum roll please.... On Friday, Dec. 8th, Ball High School participated in the 37th Annual Share Your Holidays Food Drive and broke all past records!
This past Wednesday, Nov. 15th, two Galveston ISD Board Members were officially seated and the 'Oath of Office' was administered by Judge Patricia Grady to Mr. Johnny Smecca District 6-F and Dr. Matthew Hay District 5-E
