SBISD leadership threatened in lawsuit

On Friday, June 18, 2021, the Spring Branch Independent School District was sued in federal court by Virginia Elizondo, a past candidate for the SBISD Board of Trustees. Ms. Elizondo is seeking an immediate change to the system by which SBISD elects its Board of Trustees. You can read the filing here.

Ms. Elizondo is calling for the creation of "Single-Member Districts" or SMD's within SBISD. Creation of SMD's would disenfranchise almost 80,000 voters in SBISD because they would no longer be able to cast a vote for each candidate on the school board. In fact, some years they may not be allowed to vote at all.

Ms. Elizondo is calling for SBISD to suffer under the same governance structure as the failed Houston Independent School District (HISD). Sadly, HISD has been unable to select a superintendent for the last three years and is on the brink of being taken over by the state. HISD is not a district we should model ourselves after in any way whatsoever.
