Your Voice

In public schools, you will find:

  • Access to the governing board of trustees

    Texas public school boards meet in open public meetings you can attend.

  • Schools governed by people like you who care about educating students and volunteer

    School board members are not paid; instead, they donate their time for the common good.

  • Open meetings that guarantee you can know about key decisions

    Meetings are posted in advance, and the actions of the board are public record.

  • Opportunity to have a say

    Bond elections are one way of deciding the future of your school. Participate in the decisions to build new buildings or make improvements to existing ones.

  • Ability to change the governing board in regular elections

    The schools belong to the public, and voters choose who will represent them on the board.
