The McKinney ISD Board of Trustees is comprised of seven board members who are elected by the general public to serve for overlapping terms of three years each. MISD Board members are not compensated for their service on the board. Elections for board seats are conducted annually each May. The candidates run for specific places on the board (Place 1, Place 2, etc.), but they represent the McKinney ISD as a whole. Once elections are finalized the Board elects a president, vice-president and secretary for one-year terms.
