Fort Worth ISD board president Tobi Jackson is seeking another term on the school board, where she’s served for almost 13 years.

Jackson was first elected in 2010 and represents District 2. She has raised $5,320 for her re-election campaign so far. 

She works as the executive director for Fort Worth SPARC, a nonprofit providing after school programs and resources for students in Tarrant County. 

The officer positions on the school board rotate and Jackson has served as the secretary, vice president and president. Her president terms were May 2017-2019 and May 2021 to current.

She filed to run on Jan. 20 and hosted a re-election campaign event at the Capital Grille the night before.

“It has been an honor to serve our youth, employees, constituents and our community,” Jackson said in a Facebook post announcing her campaign. “Thank you for allowing me to serve.”

Election Day is May 6 and early voting starts April 24. Fort Worth ISD board members are elected in single-member districts. They serve four-year terms. The seats for Districts, 3, 5 and 6 also are slated for the May 6 election.

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