An informational "Candidates Academy" will be held Feb. 3 in the DSISD Administration Building, where Superintendent Dr. Holly Morris-Kuentz will share information about the role and responsibilities of Board members, and answer questions. Attending the meeting does not commit an individual to running for a trustee seat; it is informational in nature. A time is still to be determined; more information will be posted here.
Board of Trustee candidates in Texas must meet the following qualifications:
- Be a United States citizen
- Be 18 years of age or older
- Not be mentally incapacitated (as defined in policy)
- Have not been convicted of a felony
- Be a resident of Texas and the district for a specified period of time (see policy)
