What is the role of the school board?
A seven-member Board of
Trustees serves as the legal agent of the State
of Texas in carrying out the will of the citizens
of the Aldine Independent School District. The
school board is the policy-making body for the
school district. In addition to setting policy,
the board also hires the superintendent of schools,
holds regularly scheduled meetings to conduct
the business of the district, approves employment
and termination of personnel, approves the budget
and sets the tax rate, approves property purchases,
approves new building plans, awards bids, hears
grievances of employees, students, and citizens
of the district, and authorizes collection, disbursement
and auditing of funds.
