School Board Election
The Board of Trustees consists of seven members elected to serve, without compensation, for overlapping terms of four years each. Elections are conducted in May of odd numbered years. While candidates run for specific places, they do not represent specific geographical areas; rather, each represents Plano ISD at large. The board annually elects a president, vice-president and a secretary at the organizational meeting for the election of officers. Elections and terms are outlined in Board Policy BBB(LOCAL).
To be elected to the Plano ISD Board of Trustees, a candidate must receive a plurality of votes, meaning more votes than any other candidate, except as otherwise provided by law. Policy BBB(LEGAL)
