Texas Law grants the Board of Trustees the power to govern and oversee the management of the district’s schools. The board is the policy-making body within the district and has overall responsibility for the curriculum, school taxes, annual budget, and employment of the superintendent and other professional staff, facilities, and expansions. The board has complete and final control over school matters within limits established by state and federal law and regulations.
The Board of Trustees is elected by the citizens of the district to represent the community’s commitment to a strong educational program for the district’s children. Five trustees are elected by position/place and two are elected at large.
They serve without compensation, must be registered voters, and must reside in the district. Term of office is three years.
