GISD Official Statement on Clear Backpacks


Middle School Campuses Only

Prior to the start of the 2017-2018 school year, 2 out of 3 Galveston ISD middle schools chose to move to clear backpacks.  For the upcoming 2018-2019 school year, a consensus was reached by the administrators at Austin Middle School, Central Media Arts Academy & Collegiate Academy at Weis to follow the same clear backpack policy.


Clear OR Mesh backpacks are acceptable.

As of now, the elementary and high school campuses have not decided to move to clear backpacks.
