State Board of Education District Requirements

Section 7.101, Education Code, establishes the composition of the State Board of Education (SBOE). In 1984, the 68th Legislature, 2nd Called Session, set the number of districts at 15.

No state statute requires redistricting of the SBOE districts at a particular time, although the statutes governing the board assume the districts will be redrawn after each federal decennial census. See Sec. 7.104, Education Code .

The Texas Legislative Council, a nonpartisan legislative service agency, provides technical and legal support to the Texas legislature for redistricting.
