Role of the Board
The seven members of the Fabens ISD Board of Trustees are elected to four-year terms.
The primary duties of the Board are to establish district policies, adopt the district’s annual budget, approve expenditures, authorize employment, approve curriculum and make contract decisions.
The Board works in partnership with the Superintendent, who is the District’s Chief Executive Officer. We, as Board Members, share the goal of ensuring that each Fabens ISD graduate has the skills necessary to be a successful lifelong learner.
To this end, we work diligently to provide a safe environment that is conducive to a positive learning experience. The Board encourages you to take advantage of the extensive curriculum, as well as the many activities and opportunities that are provided for you.
We wish you a successful and enjoyable school year.
The Fabens ISD Board of Trustees meets on the third or fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Fabens ISD Board Room located at 821 NE G Avenue in Fabens, TX 79838. The Board may alter the location and conduct executive sessions during regular meetings as it deems necessary.
During "Public Comment", anyone may address the board on any topic not on the agenda. The board can only act on items on the agenda. However, it may direct that a topic be placed on a future agenda for consideration. Speakers are allotted three minutes each, with a total of 15 minutes per topic. The board may alter the time allowance as warranted. Derogatory remarks about political, religious or racial views, character or motives of any person or group of people are considered out of order. In extreme cases, the board may exclude persons whose disorderly conduct precludes the business of the meeting.
Though Board meetings are held in public, the board may meet in closed session for certain purposes defined by law, including personnel issues, disciplinary actions, legal proceedings and employee relations.
