The board of trustees is elected by the citizens of the district to represent the community's commitment to a strong educational program for the district's children. Trustees are elected annually and serve three-year terms. Trustees serve without compensation. The trustees must be registered voters and must reside within the district.
Policy, Agenda & Meetings:
KISD Board Policy Manual available via Policy Online. Meeting agendas and minutes are available via Board Book. The board meets the second Monday of each month, with closed session, if necessary, starting at 5:00 pm and the open session starting at 6:00 pm. Board meetings are held at the Kathy Covington Administration Building, Kaufman ISD, 1000 South Houston Street, Kaufman, Texas. In the event that large attendance is anticipated, the board may meet at another district facility. Special meetings may be called when necessary. A written notice of regular and special meetings will be posted at the Kathy Covington Administration Building at least 72 hours before the scheduled meeting time. The written notice will show the date, time, place, and subjects of each meeting. In emergencies, a meeting may be held with a two-hour notice.
All meetings are open to the public. In certain circumstances, Texas law permits the board to go into a closed session from which the public and others are excluded. Closed session may occur for such things as discussing prospective gifts and donations, real-property acquisition, certain personnel matters including employee complaints, security matters, student discipline, or consulting with attorneys regarding pending litigation.
