Board Adopts Single Member District Maps
On December 13, 2021, the North East ISD Board of Trustees adopted new single member district (SMD) maps for the purpose of electing trustees to the school board. The Board approved proposal B that was presented to the community through this webpage, social media, public hearings and a survey. The May 2022 election will be the first election with newly adopted SMD maps for SMD 2, 3 and 7. The May 2024 election will be the first election with newly adopted SMD maps for SMD 1, 4, 5 and 6. You can view the board's adopted single member district maps in the right side navigation menu through the button "Adopted Interactive SMD Maps." A copy of the December 13 presentation also appears on the right under Resources and Links.
New single member district maps were needed because Texas Education Code requires a school district to redistrict if data shows existing single member districts have a population deviation of more than 10% between the most and least populous single member district. According to data from the 2020 Census, NEISD's most populous SMD (District 6, population 72,434) and our least populous SMD (District 3, population 53,953) currently have a deviation of 29.8%.

Board Engages in Redistricting Process
In November and December 2021, North East ISD will engage in a redistricting process for its Board of Trustee single member districts. Redistricting involves changing the single member district boundaries used for trustee elections. There will be no impact on any of our school attendance boundaries.
NEISD is making changes to the single member districts because the Texas Education Code requires a school district to redistrict if data shows existing single member districts have a population deviation of more than 10 percent between the most and least populous district. Census data, gathered every ten years, is what is used to determine those population changes.
Based on the 2020 Census population totals, NEISD single member district 6 as it exists today is now the most populous district, and NEISD single member district 3 is the least populous. The deviation between the two of these is 29.8 percent so redistricting is needed to balance the single member districts as required by the Texas Education Code.
You are invited to review two proposals for single member district maps and provide your input through a short survey. You may do this through this website or at a public meeting listed below. The survey will be open through November 12, 2021. Feedback will be shared with the Board of Trustees prior to a vote on the proposals.
