Four McKinney ISD board of trustees seats are up for election this year: Places 1, 2, 3 and 7.

Place 3 incumbent Kathi Livezey did not file for re-election, according to the district website as of 8 p.m. Feb. 12.



Board members in MISD serve two-year, staggered terms and are not subject to term limits. Candidates for places 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 are elected by voters who reside in that specific subdistrict. Places 6 and 7 are elected at-large by voters across the school district.

After elections are finalized and results are canvassed, the MISD school board trustees elect a president, vice president and secretary to one-year terms.

The candidate filing period for the May 1 election closed at 5 p.m. Feb. 12.
