TISD Board of Trustees Put Plans in Place for Redistricting

Texarkana, TX – During the Monday, December 6, 2021 called session, Texarkana Independent School District Board of Trustees held a public hearing on realigning trustee districts at 11:30 a.m. at the TISD District Services Building, 1600 Waterall St., Texarkana, TX 75501.  During this time, information on the redistricting plans was presented and any questions answered for the general public.  Plans are also available on the district’s website at www.txkisd.net and questions can be emailed to gayle.hale@txkisd.net.

The Board of Trustees also received information on their Initial Assessment Report for redistricting.  The Initial Assessment Report for redistricting was given by the firm of Bickerstaff Heath Delgado Acosta from Austin, Texas.  Their review of the recently released 2020 Census population and demographic data for TISD show the trustee districts sufficiently out of population balance that redistricting is recommended in order to bring them into balance for use in the 2022 election cycle.

The TISD Board of Trustees will consider adopting a final redistricting plan at the December 15, 2021 regular session.
