The seven-member Board of Trustees acts as the school district's policy-making body and is the official representative of the people for all education in the Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District.

The Board functions according to state and federal laws, the rules and regulations established by the State Board of Education, and the will of the people as expressed in District elections.
