Tornillo ISD Board
Texas law grants the Board of Trustees the power to govern and oversee the management of the District's schools. The Board is the policy-making body within the District and has overall responsibility for the budget, tax rates and other matters relating to school operation within limits established by law and State Board of Education rules.
Trustees are elected by the registered voters of the District. They are elected by place and serve four-year terms. Trustees serve without compensation, must be registered voters, and must reside in the District.
The Board meets at 6:00 p.m. in the Board Room located in the W.E. Neill Service Center at 19210 Cobb Avenue. These meetings are normally held on the last Wednesday of each month; although special meetings may be called when necessary. A written notice of regular and special meetings will be posted at the Central Administration Building at least 72 hours before the scheduled meeting time. In emergencies, a meeting may be held with a two hour notice. All meetings are open to the public.
