The Board is charged with the responsibility of providing the finest educational program possible for the students in the Pine Tree Independent School District, operating within the legal parameters of the state and federal constitutions, statutes, courts, and administrative agencies.
School trustees make all final decisions regarding school district priorities, policies, personnel, textbooks, expenditures, and growth management. Trustees adopt a budget which is necessary to maintain and operate the schools, levy taxes to support the budget, and submit bond issues to the citizens of the district to finance construction projects.
Elections are conducted annually in May. While candidates run for specific places, they do not represent specific geographical areas; rather, each represents PTISD at large. Following the annual election, the Board elects a president, vice-president and secretary to serve for one-year terms.
