Welcome to Science
Philosophy of GPISD Science
The mission of the Galena Park Independent School District is to prepare students to become productive citizens and lifelong learners. We feel that by engaging our students in exciting investigations that incorporate higher level critical thinking skills, we can ensure success for all of our students.
Furthermore, science is an extension of everyone's natural curiosity and is a resource for becoming a critical and engaged citizen. The GPISD science department seeks to cultivate student's scientific habits of mind, develop their ability to engage in scientific inquiry, and foster their reasoning skills in scientific contexts.
The State Board of Education (SBOE) TEKS review and revision process calls for multiple, separate work groups to make recommendations to the SBOE for revisions to the current standards. SBOE members nominate individuals, including educators, parents, business and industry representatives, and employers, to serve on TEKS review work groups. This process was underway during the 19-20 school year to review the Science TEKS. As of February 2020, Work Group A met to review feedback collected from the TEKS review process and to develop recommendations for subsequent science TEKS review work groups.
