Tomball ISD is governed by an elected seven-member board. School Board members are guardians of the public trust and, through the policies they make, are ultimately responsible for the success or failure of local public education. The board serves as the advocate for educational excellence for the community’s youth and puts those interests first.

Tomball ISD has officially signed the purchase agreement of the former corporate headquarters of BJ Services. This campus, located within Tomball ISD boundaries off FM 2920, includes a 70-acre site consisting of 11 buildings and more than 20 acres for future development.


In June, the Tomball ISD Board of Trustees authorized the Superintendent of Schools or Chief Financial Officer to take action necessary to facilitate and finalize the purchase of this campus. Then, on August 12, during its regular meeting, the School Board unanimously approved the purchase of all facilities at the BJ Services complex for $39.5 million plus closing costs using reserve funds available in the General Fund.


With the purchase of this multifaceted and innovative campus, Tomball ISD will bring about the largest multi-purpose educational complex in the area and be able to offer innovative opportunities for generations to come.

Being a mentor for kids was his calling from the beginning.


For Courtnay (Coco) White, his past experiences helped shape who he has become as a leader in the Tomball community.


Today, he not only serves the people of his hometown as a police officer but also as a respected School Resource Officer (SRO) for Tomball ISD and as a senior pastor at his childhood church.


White is a native of Tomball, and attended Tomball Elementary, Beckendorf Intermediate, Tomball Junior High and Tomball High School.


While in school, White was actively involved in sports and ROTC, excelling in football as an all-district performer and in track, as a regional qualifier.


“Attending Tomball schools was a great experience,” he said. “Not only did I receive a great education from Tomball, but TISD prepared me for the real world.”
