The SAISD Board of Trustees, comprised of seven District residents, is the school system's policy-making body. Each trustee represents one of seven single-member districts and is elected by voters of that district. Single-member districts were implemented in 1986. Trustees serve four-year terms.

The Board's major duties include:
  • Adopting goals and objectives for the District
  • Reviewing and acting on policies
  • Adopting an annual budget and setting the tax rate
  • Electing school personnel as recommended by the superintendent
  • Reporting to the public on the District's progress
