Board of Trustees

Elected by the people to govern 51 Schools, Trustees are the guardians of the public trust and, through the policies they make, are ultimately responsible for our schools. This responsibility and the accessibility of Trustees to the voters make the Board one of the purest examples of democracy in our society.

51 Trustees represent 355 square miles in northwest Bexar County and parts of Medina and Bandera counties and are elected by voters of their respective single-member districts. 51 continues to be the “destination” district in San Antonio for many families seeking a quality school system for their children and for employees seeking a quality place to work.

A map of 51's single-member districts is shown on the left and is for illustrative purposes only, as the boundaries depicted are approximate. (See a clearer view of each single-member district.)

The Bexar County Elections Department manages a database that allows you to enter your home address to find out which trustee represents you. To access that database, visit their .
