About the Board
The Cedar Hill ISD Board of Trustees consists of seven members elected to serve, without compensation, for overlapping terms of three years each. 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 school district priorities, policies, personnel, textbooks, expenditures and growth management. Trustees adopt a budget which 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. The board employs and evaluates the superintendent.
Board Meetings & Agendas
The Cedar Hill ISD Board of Trustees participates in a variety of meetings. While these meetings are open to the public (with the exception of closed sessions), these are not meetings of the public. The purpose of the meetings is to conduct district business and provide the members of the board an opportunity to discuss issues with each other and with staff.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Governor Abbott has waived provisions in the Texas Open Meetings Act to allow public meetings to be held virtually or telephonically and has strongly encouraged meetings to be held this way:
