The Austin ISD Board of Trustees is composed of a group of unpaid, dedicated individuals, who guide the Austin Independent School District toward excellence. As the district's elected leaders, trustees represent community expectations as they chart the direction of educational programs and services and establish the standard by which success is measured.

Trustees establish policies for operating the district and ensuring its financial viability. The board also employs the superintendent, approves the budget and monitors expenditures, sets the tax rate, and may call for a bond or tax rate election.
