Lewisville ISD is set to hold a school board election May 4.

Board Vice President Buddy Bonner and trustee Allison Lassahn are at the end of their three-year terms. Both board members have filed candidate applications for the upcoming election, according to district documents. Bonner and Lassahn hold places 1 and 2, respectively.

The details

Beginning with the upcoming election, the district is transitioning to a hybrid election system where places 1 through 5 will become single-member districts, and places 6 and 7 will be at large. The change to single-member districts means only residents in the corresponding geographical area can vote for members running for the respective place. The places that are at large can be voted on irrespective of a voter’s area of residence, according to the district website. The board approved the change last year.

The move to a hybrid election system has prompted a shift in labels for the places held by board members, Communications Director Samantha FitzPatrick said. In light of this change, trustees Bonner and Lassahn filed candidate applications for places that reflect the transition. Bonner filed for at-large Place 6, and Lassahn filed for single-member District 1.

No other candidates have filed applications at this time, according to the district website.
