Burleson ISD School Board Announces Place 6 Vacancy

The Burleson ISD School Board invites interested parents and taxpayers to volunteer their time and expertise to serve on the school board. The Place 6 seat was vacated this month by the resignation of Board Trustee Beverly Volkman Powell, who announced her intent to run for the Texas State Senate, District 10.


Citizens interested in applying to fill the unexpired term for the Place 6 seat on the BISD School Board must complete and submit an application to the BISD Superintendent’s office by noon on  November 10, 2017.


The individual appointed by the board will serve in the vacancy until the Place 6 term expires in May 2018. Voters will elect a candidate to fill the Place 6 seat for a three-year term in the May 2018 municipal election.


Trustees will consider all applications and select individuals to interview during executive session at a special school board meeting in November. The board intends to make a decision regarding the appointment at a school board meeting in December.


Please note: Submitting an application does not necessarily guarantee an interview. Applicants must certify that they are eligible to serve as a Trustee, have lived in Texas for the past 12 months and have lived in Burleson ISD for the past six months.


Applicants certify that they have read, understand and meet the qualification for trustee as outlined in Board Policy BBA (Legal).
