Grand Prairie ISD has a new election system. Five of the Trustee positions will be elected from single-member districts, and the other two positions will be elected “at-large.” Map of the single-member district boundaries.
Candidates for single-member district positions must reside within the boundaries of that district. Candidates for at-large positions may live anywhere within the boundaries of the Grand Prairie ISD.
