CBOC meeting at Workman Junior High speak with the construction manager for McNutt Elementary

Jan. 20, 2016 - The Citizens Bond Oversight Committee met yesterday for its quarterly review of the status and progress of the 2014 Bond program. Led by AISD chief financial officer Cindy Powell, AISD staff gave updates on the various areas of the bond: fine arts; safety, security and technology; transportation; and facilities.

The meeting was held in the recently-expanded cafeteria at Workman Junior High. (See photos of the cafeteria.) But before convening in the cafeteria, the committee members met in the parking lot where they could see additional renovations underway at Workman, along with a new AISD elementary school, McNutt Elementary, under construction next door. The superintendent of construction for the elementary school, Andy Grimes of Balfour Beatty Construction, explained the work going on and gave a progress report. (See photos of the Workman addition construction and McNutt Elementary construction.)

The CBOC's task now is to prepare a report of its findings for the AISD Board of Directors. (Read more about the CBOC's charge.)
