Jan. 23, 2017 - The Citizens Bond Oversight Committee met last week 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 Peach Elementary. Committee members received a tour of the new building, guided by Principal Dr. Stephanie Lee. Peach, which opened in August, will have a dedication ceremony this Saturday, Jan. 28.

Craig Wright, AISD's CTE director, and Ginger Polster, the CTC's future principal, described the programs the CTC will house and discussed the AISD's strong commitment to career and technical education.
