  • The Royse City 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. RCISD Board members are not compensated for their service on the board. Elections for board seats are conducted annually each May. Once elections are finalized, the Board elects a president, vice-president and secretary for one-year terms. In 2016, the RCISD Board was named a Texas Honor Board Top 5 in the state. 

    Regular meetings are typically held monthly at the Royse City ISD Administration Building located at 810 Old Greenville Road in Royse City, Texas. Agendas are posted in advance for review. A closed session portion of the meeting typically begins one hour prior to the start of the public meeting.

    Summer Update: Board meetings in June & July will begin at 6:00 p.m. rather than the normal 7:00 p.m. Meeting dates, agendas and public notices are regularly posted here.

    Questions/comments can be directed to board trustee members at boardtrustee@rcisd.org Please include your name and contact information – The Board will not respond to Anonymous emails.
