Board Meeting FAQs

  • When does the Board meet?

    The McKinney ISD Board of Trustees will hold a regular meeting once a month, on the fourth Tuesday of each month unless otherwise noted, in the Community Event Center located at 4201 S. Hardin Blvd. in McKinney. Board agenda items will be posted on the MISD website and on the doors of the Central Administration building prior to each regularly scheduled board meeting.

  • Who determines what is on the agenda?

    In consultation with the Board president, the Superintendent prepares the agenda for all meetings of the Board. Individual Board members may request that a subject be included on the agenda for a particular meeting. The agenda must be set and posted 72 hours prior to a meeting. Notice of all meetings shall provide for the possibility of a closed session during an open meeting as provided by law.

  • How are Board meetings conducted?

    The Board President, or Vice President in his or her absence, presides at all board meetings. Discussion of an agenda item is addressed to the President of the Board and the entire board membership and is directed solely to the business currently under deliberation. The Board president will halt discussion that does not apply to the business before the Board and will also keep discussion within reasonable time limits. A simple majority is required to pass a motion. The McKinney ISD Board of Trustees meets in compliance with the Texas Open Meetings Act and makes public records available pursuant to the Texas Open Records Act.

    During a meeting, there are legally specified circumstances that call for an adjournment to closed session for discussion and consideration. These circumstances include personnel matters, land acquisitions or sales, legal consultation, and student or employee hearings. All votes, however, are taken in public.

  • Who can attend school board meetings?

    School Board meetings are open to anyone, and citizens are welcome and encouraged to attend. If unable to attend the meetings, citizens are invited to watch a live video feed here or after the meetings conclusion, a video recording of the meeting is available here. Minutes are not available or official until approved at the following regular meeting of the Board.

  • How can a citizen address the Board?

    The trustees represent you in determining what is best for the children attending McKinney ISD schools, and you should feel comfortable expressing your opinions to them. Your input into the direction of MISD is encouraged and will always be considered by the Board.

    Any individual seeking to speak during the public comment session of a regular board meeting must complete and submit the online Speaker Participation Form no later than 12 p.m. (noon) the day of the board meeting.

  • Are signs permitted in the Board Meeting?

    In an effort to maintain an orderly and respectful meeting atmosphere, signs are not permitted in the board meeting.
