The commissioner of education, the State Board of Education , and the Texas Education Agency guide and monitor public education in Texas.
The SBOE provides leadership and state level administration, and the commissioner and TEA staff work with the board to implement education policy.
Texas has delegated much of tho responsibility for education to the local school board. Locally elected school boards are political subdivisions carrying out a state Amotion.
The board serves as the advocate for educational excellence for the community’s youth and puts those interests first
The policies school boards make dictate foe standards and philosophy by which schools are run and the criteria used to judge whether they are being run wwL This responsibility often entails difficult choices, self-sacrifice, and exposure to public criticism.
11nitial 6 Holy man 11 CtA'a
The key roles and responsibilities of a school board member are:
• Hire and evaluate the superintendent and delegate all administrative responsibilities
• Approve the school district’s budget
• Establish goals and evaluate outcomes
• Adopt and evaluate policies
• Communicate with the community
A school board is a governmental body, so it can take action only by a majority vote at a legally called public meeting. The individual board member’s major responsibility is to study, evaluate, and, after due consideration, vote in the bast interest of all students at sufo a meeting. Aboard member who attempts — without authorization — to speak for the whole board, direct members of staff, or make other individual decisions is exceeding his or her authority.
