The board oversees the district of 26,423 students.

Application Guidelines
1) Contact the municipal city clerk or district filing location to confirm that your registered address qualifies you for the position you intend to run for, and that you meet other office specific qualifications. 2) Complete the application and fulfill any petition signature requirements or prepare a filing fee. If you have questions regarding this paperwork, the best thing to do is to call the filing office--often the City Clerk for city positions, or the district secretary office for school boards--or (even better) schedule an appointment with them regarding any questions. Most elections offices are happy to schedule time for candidates, and it is generally understood that first time candidates will have more questions. 3) Submit the application accompanied by either the application fee or nominating papers within 108-78 days prior to the election. If you have any issuses connecting with the municipal clerk/secretary or the district filing location, contact the Dallas County Elections Department at (214) 819-6300 or dallascountyvotes@dallascounty.org. The Texas Secretary of State elections department is also an excellent resource for election/candidacy questions and can be reached at (512) 463-5650 or http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/candidates/index.shtml
