Texas Education Code ban on 'electioneering'

Texas Education Code - Section 11.169 - Electioneering Prohibited

  • Notwithstanding any other law, the board of trustees of an independent school district may not use state or local funds or other resources of the district to electioneer for or against any candidate, measure, or political party.

Would the Dallas ISD Newsline distributed to registered voters be considered a violation of the ban on "electioneering"?
