(Austin)—Jacinto Ramos Jr. of Fort Worth ISD has been reelected to a three-year term on the Texas Association of School Boards’ (TASB) Board of Directors, representing TASB Region 11, Position B. The election was held during the Association’s 2020 Delegate Assembly, which was held virtually on October 3.

Ramos is president of the Fort Worth ISD Board, having served for seven years. He is the 2020–21 president of the Mexican American School Boards Association and the chair of the National School Boards Association Council of Urban Boards of Education.

Born and raised in Fort Worth, Ramos has devoted his time to providing a voice to disengaged and disenchanted youth. He works as the chief of governance and leadership at Leadership ISD, a nonprofit that equips community leaders to advance racial equity and academic excellence in public education.

In addition, he is a member of the Council of the Great City Schools, the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, and a fellow of the Center for Reform of School Systems. He also is part of the Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color, where he is the only Texas school board member on the advisory team.

Ramos has a degree in criminal justice and criminology from The University of Texas at Arlington and a master’s degree from Amberton University. He is on track to complete his doctorate in educational leadership and administration.
