Filing deadline approaches for Texas school board elections

The filing deadline to run for school board in 57 Texas districts is on February 12, 2021. The general election is scheduled for May 1, 2021. 

If no candidate wins the majority of the vote in the general election, the top two vote-getters will advance to a runoff election. The date of the runoff election varies by school district.

Some school boards in Texas hold elections in November. Six school districts covered by Ballotpedia will have general elections on November 2, 2021.

During the 2016-2017 school year, 1,955,339 students were enrolled in the 57 districts holding elections in May.
