Trustee Anne Darr is tossing her hat in the ring for a second term on the Fort Worth ISD school board.

Darr, 55, filed for re-election on Jan. 19. She represents District 6, which covers parts of the Texas Christian University area and extends south past Sycamore School Road. Election Day is May 6.

“I look forward to continuing the work for students, parents, families, teachers, staff, and the greater community. We are better and stronger together,” Darr said in a Facebook post

Darr is in her first term; she was elected in 2019. She is an educational consultant for deaf and hard-of-hearing services at Education Service Center Region 11. Darr and her husband, Rich, have three children.

Darr earned a bachelor’s degree in deaf education and a master’s in educational administration from Texas Christian University. She previously was an elementary and middle school teacher.

Fort Worth ISD board members are elected in single-member districts. They serve four-year terms. The seats for Districts 2, 3 and 5 also are slated for the May 6 election.

Candidates have until Feb. 17 to file for a place on the ballot.
