Notice of Meetings
Board Election Notice
In response to a new state mandate and ruling from the Attorney General’s office, the LCISD Board of Trustees has changed its election cycle. The new ruling states that school districts must hold trustee elections on the same uniform election date as the election for government officials of municipalities located in the school district or during the general election for state and county officials.
The legal opinion by Attorney General Greg Abbott also requires a school board to change to four-year trustee terms to coincide with the terms of the officials of the partnering city.
The plan extends some trustees terms from three- to four-year terms in order to hold joint elections with the City of Rosenberg . Trustees with election terms that expire in even years would be extended one year to coincide with Rosenberg ’s odd-year election schedule.
Beginning with 2009, all trustee elections will be for 4-year terms.
