Election Information

school board electionHempstead ISD School Board Trustee Elections

The Hempstead ISD Board of Trustees is made up of seven board members who are 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 each year in May and serve three-year staggered terms. Trustees serve without compensation, must be registered voters and must reside in the district.

Trustees are elected to a specific place on the board (ex. Place 1, Place 2, etc.) although they represent the entire district as a whole. Each year after the election is finalized, the Board elects officers (president, vice president, and secretary) for a one year term.
