I work for LVISD and served very successfully on a school board for a private school in Alamo Heights. We didn't get paid financially, the only motivation you have as a school board member is to know you're being effective. You know your doing a good job when testing results come in better each year, when your school thrives, when parents call to say "thank you" for your representation and when employees enjoy their job and come up regularly to tell you so. We enjoyed going to the school and talking with the employees and kiddos, we often went out in the community as a school board and talked with community members. Before we made decisions on behalf of the school, we talked to the employees, teachers and parents. We didn't always make the decisions they wanted, but they always appreciated allowing them input. That was the reward. Although I served on a private school board, which is quite different than a public school board, I know that there is a law that information is available to the public by submitting an Open Records Request. If you feel that the district or any district is not complying with the law or is involved in a shady business deal, you need to get that information ASAP. I couldn't find a form or template on the LVISD website, but if you just look up Open Records Act on Yahoo, you can click on any of the school district sites and get a template. For instance, I just clicked on Coppell ISD and they actually have a user-friendly Open Records Request Electronic Form. Get a piece of paper, write down your name, address, phone and email, you need to list the items you are requesting and be very specific, mail that to the district office, they have 10 days to provide you with the information that you have requested, unless that information is being used in some sort of investigation by the police or FBI, if that is the case, I think you have to go to the Attorney General and then they make a decision if you can get the information. It's really not hard and it's your right as a tax payer. You don't even have to live in the district.
