The Board of Trustees consists of seven board members elected to serve, without compensation, for overlapping terms of three years each. 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.
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 selects a president, vice-president and secretary to serve one-year terms.
