The Board of Trustees consists of seven members who act as our district’s policy-making body. Trustees work with the Superintendent and staff to set the direction of the school district with the education and well-being of school children as its primary focus.
Board members are elected at-large by the citizens in CISD for three-year, staggered terms. They not only represent the public but also translate the needs of students into policies, goals, and strategies that reflect the standards and values of the community as a whole.
