Grand Prairie ISD Board Elections
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.
Duties of the Board
Operating within the legal parameters of the state and federal constitutions, statutes, courts, and administrative agencies, the Board is charged with the responsibility of providing the finest educational program possible for the students in the District. School trustees make all final decisions regarding the school district's priorities, policies, personnel, textbooks, expenditures, and growth management. Trustees adopt a budget that is necessary to maintain and operate the schools, levy taxes to support the budget and submit bond issues to the citizens of the District to finance construction projects.
