What is the process for appointing a board of managers?

When the need for a board of managers is established at a school district, a call for applications is made within the respective community. In collaboration with the Regional Education Center (ESC),TEA hosts a community meeting to provide information on the role, duties, and projected timelines for a commissioner appointed board of managers, and answer questions and concerns. Once the application window has closed, applications are screened, candidates are trained in Lone Star Governance, and interviews are conducted. Once finalists are identified, they are presented to the commissioner of education for final review and approval.
