Texas law grants the board of trustees the power to govern and oversee the management of the
district’s schools. The board is the policy-making body within the district and has overall
responsibility for the curriculum, school taxes, annual budget, employment of the
superintendent and other professional staff, and facilities. The Board has complete and final
control over school matters within limits established by state and federal laws and regulations.
The Board of Trustees is elected by the citizens of the district to represent the community’s
commitment to a strong educational program for the district’s children. Board members are
elected at-large and serve three-year terms. Board members serve without compensation, must
be qualified voters, and must reside in the district.

The Board usually meets the 4th Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the
Caldwell ISD Board Room located at 203 North Gray,
Caldwell, TX. In the event that large attendance is anticipated, the Board may meet in
the High School Auditorium. Special meetings may be called when necessary. A written
notice of regular and special meetings will be posted on the district website Board
Agenda and at the Caldwell ISD Administration Office at least 72 hours before the
scheduled meeting time. The written notice will show the date, time, place, and subjects
of each meeting. In emergencies, a meeting may be held with a one-hour notice.
All meetings are open to the public. In certain circumstances, Texas law permits the Board to go
into a closed session from which the public and others are excluded. Closed sessions may occur
for such things as discussing prospective gifts or donations, real-property acquisition, certain
personnel matters including employee complaints, security matters, student discipline, or
consulting with attorneys regarding pending litigation.
