Want to know more about what is involved in being elected to and serving on the local school board? The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) has a wealth of information for community members considering running for office, which can be found by visiting LTS.tasb.org/candidates.

Welcome, from the Killeen Independent School District Board of Trustees!
Killeen ISD is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees elected by you, the public. Members are residents of the school district, elected to three-year terms and serve at large, having no assigned jurisdiction. Biographical information regarding current Board members may be found under a tab on this page.
Board members welcome your input on any broad topics related to the school district, from student curriculum to facilities maintenance. Citizens have the opportunity to share thoughts with the Board during Public Forum which is part of each monthly board meeting. Board members, individually, cannot resolve specific complaints, but issues do come before them as part of the district’s grievance process.
All meetings of the Board are open to the public and are posted on the District web site. The agenda for each meeting is posted 72 hours in advance. These meetings are your opportunity to witness the business of the school district and you are always welcome to attend.
For further information, please contact the Board Clerk at 336-0006.
