An exceptional education has long been the focus of our district. Our top responsibility is to provide a rigorous, innovative educational experience that prepares all students for college and careers, along with developing meaningful relationships between schools, families and the community in a safe and secure environment.

With this in mind, the Garland ISD Board of Trustees and Superintendent Dr. López have created specific objectives to establish and define district academic targets.

The work of the board and the district will continue as departments and campuses collaborate to develop action plans and data reporting steps. As these efforts advance and data points are collected, updates will be provided and shared so that progress on key performance indicators can be monitored.
