Oct. 27, 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 brand new bond-funded McNutt Elementary. Committee members received a tour of the new building, guided by Principal Dr. Jackeline Orsini. Though McNutt has been open since school started in August, some construction tasks remain, like metal paneling on the exterior, landscaping, the elevator, playground and punch-list items.
