The Board of Trustees consists of seven Board members elected to serve, without compensation, for overlapping terms of three years each. Elections are conducted annually in May. While candidates run for specific places, they do not represent specific geographical areas; rather, each represents TISD at large. Following the annual election, the Board elects a president, vice-president and secretary to serve for one-year terms.

RESPONSIBILITIES OF SERVICE

 

School Boards and Superintendent work as a team to lead the District. The "Team of Eight," consisting of the seven-member board of trustees and the Superintendent, work together to guide the Terrell Independent School District towards excellence. The current board members bring diverse backgrounds and expertise into the system and together.

TISD voters elect seven board members to serve three-year staggered terms. Five positions are elected in geographic districts and two trustees are elected at-large. Elections are held annually on the second Saturday in May. The Board establishes educational policies to be executed by the Superintendent of Schools, whose primary responsibility is to provide creative and effective administrative leadership.
