Superintendent's Student Advisory Board

  • Purpose & Mission

    The purpose of the Galena Park ISD Student Advisory Board (SAB) is to provide an avenue of participation and involvement of secondary student leaders in the District. The SAB will offer advice on student concerns to the Superintendent from the perspective of the students in GPISD. The primary mission will be to promote the GPISD goals through student input into those areas that impact student performance, safety and security, dropout prevention, and other areas of concern.


    The SAB will consist of a total of approximately 26 students from Galena Park ISD secondary campuses who also serve on their Principal's Advisory Board. The Superintendent (or designee) may request to add an additional student(s) to the SAB.  A staff member designee will also be assigned by the Superintendent to serve as the group Sponsor.
