Houston ISD School Board Elections

Text says, "We Fight. We Win! Hashtag Our Work Is Powerful."

If we’ve seen anything through three schools years disrupted by COVID-19, it’s the importance of electing pro-public education, community-driven allies to our local school boards.

Many school districts have stepped in to protect students and staff, when state leaders have been pursuing their own political games. Other districts have not. And it all comes down to who we’re electing at the local level.

Keeping Our Schools Safe

Houston ISD has upcoming school board elections. For the safety of our schools and all those in them, we need to elect leaders who will follow science, not politics.

Text says "Mask up." Illustration of a face mask is below.

Step 1: Vaccinated or not, wear your mask indoors to protect our students and those who can’t get vaccinated.

Text says "Get vaccinated." Illustration of a vaccine bottle is below.

Step 2: If you’re eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine, get it. Vaccines are the No. 1 way to protect our communities.

Text says "Vote." Illustration of a ballot box is below.

Step 3: Vote for pro-public education school board candidates who will listen to educators and put safety first.
