Human Resource Services
As we look forward to the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, the Galena Park Independent School District (GPISD) Human Resource Services (HRS) Department stands ready to serve and assist the GPISD community. HRS understands that in these unprecedented, uncertain, and ever-evolving times, there will be multiple questions and concerns as we plan for the upcoming school year. HRS is here to answer any questions employees and/or parents may have, as well as to provide current information regarding COVID-19 and employment.
Our mission is to ensure and enforce all GPISD employees abide by the most current guidelines and standards provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Harris County Health Department, and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) upon returning to work in order to slow and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Below, you will find contact information for key HRS staff, as well as links to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Harris County Health Department, and the Texas Education Agency (TEA), where more information regarding COVID-19 and school startup can be located.
