2021 HPISD School Board Election Information

The Highland Park ISD Board of Trustees consists of seven members, each of whom has been elected to serve a three-year term. School board members are entrusted with the responsibility of setting policy and promoting educational excellence for Highland Park ISD and receive no compensation. While candidates run for specific places, they do not represent specific geographical areas. To be elected to the Highland Park ISD Board of Trustees, a candidate must receive a plurality of votes, meaning more votes than any other candidate for that place (except as otherwise provided by law).  Election Day is the first Saturday each May.  Dallas County registered voters may now vote at any vote center. 

In May 2021 election places 1 and 2 were up for election.  Also, the unexpended one-year term for place 3 was up for election.
