The Austin Independent School District (AISD) Board of Trustees are the district’s elected leaders who represent community expectations of AISD as they chart the direction of educational programs and services in the district. 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. More information regarding the trustees is located at the AISD website.
