Make Education a Priority will Promote Effective School Board Governance. With more than 7300 elected school board trustees serving over 5.2 million students, both trustees and superintendents must work together as an effective leadership team in order to ensure student success. Locally elected, school board trustees are entrusted by the public to develop and educated the most precious asset we have - our children.
Under the Framework for School Board Governance document provided by the Texas State Board of Education, Make Education a Priority will focus on advocating to school board trustees the value of strong governance as outlined under the document's principals of vision, structure, accountability, advocacy, and unity.
The Framework document provides a road map for governance that supports a strong system of public education.
