Aug. 31, 2017 - The Citizens Bond Oversight Committee met last night 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 at Miller Elementary, the site of many bond-funded improvements. Miller Principal Shelly Osten gave the committee a tour of some of the bond-funded, renovated spaces at Miller, including the front-entrance-security vestibule, STEM labs, strings room, music room and K-pod. Miller also received a new parking lot and driveway, new roof and significant mechanical renovations.

The committee is comprised of a maximum of 11 members appointed by the Board to serve two-year staggered terms. Terms may be extended for additional one or two year terms upon approval by the Board.
