About the district

College Station Independent School District is located in Brazos County, TX
College Station ISD is located in College Station, Texas, which is also a county seat of Brazos County, Texas. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, College Station is home to 93,857 residents.[1]


College Station outperformed the rest of Texas with regard to graduation rate, but under performed in regards to average household income and poverty rate in 2011. The graduation rate in College Station was 93.0% compared to 80.4% statewide. The average household income in College Station was $31,332 compared to $50,920 for Texas.

Racial Demographics, 2010[1]
Race College Station City (%) Texas (%)
White 77.2 70.4
Black or African American 6.8 11.8
American Indian and Alaska Native 0.4 0.7
Asian 9.1 3.8
Two or More Races 2.4 2.7
Hispanic or Latino 14.0 37.6

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one- or two-tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[2] This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.

Method of board member selection

The College Station Independent School District board consists of seven members elected to three-year terms.[3] The CSISD does not hold a primary election and the general election was held on November 5, 2013.
