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 law and State Board of Education rules.
The board of trustees is elected by the citizens of the district to ensure a strong educational program for the district’s children. Trustees are elected at-large and serve four-year terms. Trustees serve without compensation, must be registered voters, and must reside in the district.
