  • 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 MISD at large. Following the annual election, the Board elects a president, vice-president and secretary to serve for one-year terms.

    Place 1, 2, and 3: 2022, 2025, 2028, 2031, 2034, and in three-year intervals thereafter.
    Place 4 and 5: 2023, 2026, 2029, 2032, 2035, and in three-year intervals thereafter.
    Place 6 and 7: 2021, 2024, 2027, 2030, 2033, and in three-year intervals thereafter.

  • Operating within the legal parameters of the state and federal constitutions, statutes, courts, and administrative agencies, the Board is charged with the responsibility of providing the finest educational program possible for the students in the district. School trustees make all final decisions regarding school district priorities, policies, personnel, textbooks, expenditures, and growth management. Trustees adopt a budget which is necessary to maintain and operate the schools, levy taxes to support the budget, and submit bond issues to the citizens of the district to finance construction projects.

  • The Superintendent of Schools is appointed by the School Board as the chief administrator and executive officer. With the assistance of his staff, the Superintendent directs, guides and coordinates the total educational and administrative program in accordance with Board policies and the rules and regulations of the Texas Education Agency. He attends all Board meetings and brings recommendations to the Board for action in carrying out the business of the school district.

  • Regular board meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month, closed meeting 6:30 p.m. and open meeting 7:30 p.m., in the MISD Board Room, 310 East Market St., Mabank. The agenda and location are posted 72 hours prior to the meeting and the agenda is available at the location at the time of the meeting. Items for regular board agenda are required to be placed on the agenda by noon at least five working days prior to the date of the meeting.

    All regular board meetings are public meetings; however, a public meeting is not an open forum. Public participation is limited to the section called public comment so the Board may deliberate important decisions without distraction or interference.

    For more information regarding meetings of the Board of Trustees, call the MISD Administration Building 903-880-1302.
