Smithville Independent School District Board of Trustees
Smithville ISD’s Board of Trustees is the policy-making body for the school district and is elected by popular vote and meant to represent the community in matters of public education. The board is governed by both state and federal law with rules and regulations established by the Texas State Board of Education, the Texas Education Agency and the will of the community.
