Our Board of Trustees are dedicated individuals sharing a common goal of ensuring that Somerset ISD provides every student the opportunity and the educational tools to succeed. They believe in the No Child Left Behind philosophy of education and are determined that all our resources be used to reach every child. SISD trustees come from all walks of life and use their knowledge and skills to unite in the common cause of education. They attend numerous seminars, meetings, conventions, symposiums and other functions throughout the year, to better educate themselves in their roles as leaders of our educational community. They are fiscally responsible and exercise prudence in the spending of the taxpayer's money.
These seven individuals, together with the Superintendent of Schools, form a TEAM that leads Somerset ISD to greater achievements, year after year.
Mr. Saul Hinojosa is the Somerset ISD Superintendent of Schools. He is the only employee under the direction of the school board.
