Guiding the Groesbeck Independent School District toward excellence is the goal of the seven-member GISD Board of Trustees. As the district's elected leaders, trustees represent community expectations as they chart the direction of the success of educational programs and services.
Trustees employ the superintendent, approve the budget and monitor expenditures, set the tax rate, and may call for a bond or tax rate election. The board also establishes policies for operating the district and ensuring its financial viability.
