Romere, who holds the Place 4 seat on the RRISD board, cited work and family obligations as reasons for her decision, according to RRISD.
“I am proud to have served this community as a trustee and will continue to serve students and families," Romere said, in a statement. "As CEO of a real estate brokerage firm, my clients and the opportunity to develop a large commercial project needs my focus. My role as a mom also comes first with my children starting law school and joining the military.”
Romere was first elected in 2010. Her current term on the board is set to end in 2018.
The board is expected to hold a vote regarding Romere's resignation during its next regular meeting Jan. 19. Trustees could either select a replacement to carry out the rest of Romere's term or call for a special election, according to RRISD.
RRISD has seven trustees elected to its board, which is responsible for adopting district policies, employing and evaluating the superintendent, approving the budget and capital improvement plans, and setting the tax rate, according to the district.
Trustees are elected at-large by voters and serve staggered four-year terms.
As a trustee, Romere found herself in contention several times with other board members and RRISD staff.
In 2012, trustees voted four times to censure Romere, including three votes in November 2012 after Romere was accused of violating sections of RRISD board policy that involved ethics and compliance with board operating procedures. Romere denied the allegations, which she said were related to her efforts to get documents regarding attendance numbers for RRISD's alternative high school, Success High School.
In its statement Wednesday, RRISD noted Romere's support of the district's successful $299 million bond in 2014, the expansion of agriculture science programs, the approval of a district strategic plan and the hiring of RRISD Superintendent Steve Flores.
