Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees and the Superintendent work as a “Team of Eight” to lead Texarkana Independent School District towards excellence. The current board members bring diverse backgrounds and expertise into the system and together, have over 89 years of service to the District.

TISD voters elect seven (7) Board of Trustees to serve three-year staggered terms. Five (5) positions are elected in geographic districts and two (2) positions are elected At-Large. Elections are held annually on the first Saturday in May. The Board of Trustees establishes educational policies to be executed by the Superintendent of Schools, whose primary responsibility is to provide creative and effective administrative leadership. The Board of Trustees do not receive compensation for their service.

The Board of Trustees meets in regular session on the fourth Wednesday of each month, and at other times as necessary. Meetings are held at 11:30 a.m. at the TISD Services Building, 1600 Waterall Street, or at other designated locations in the District. The public is welcome to attend all meetings.

Citizens wishing to address the Board may speak on issues other than personnel during the Public Forum, an agenda item for all regular Board meetings.
