Elections for Trustees for the Houston Independent School District Board are this November! On October 21st, CHILDREN AT RISK hosted a virtual candidate forum. Watch the recording linked below to hear how they plan to address educational inequity, the challenges for both teachers and students because of the COVID pandemic, and addressing the needs of the diverse students in our district.
All candidates seeking to be elected to the Houston ISD Board of Trustees in districts 1, 5, 6, 7, and 9 were invited.
School Board elections matter! HISD has over 197,000 students, 276 campuses, over 27,000 employees, and a new Superintendent. HISD has several nationally recognized schools as well as schools that have chronically underperformed. The trustees oversee a tax-payer-funded budget of over $2 billion dollars. Don’t forget to vote!
