Posted in on June 21, 2024

The Citizens Bond Oversight Committee gave its annual report at the Arlington ISD Board of Trustees meeting earlier this week. Will Deakyne, the committee’s interim chair, presented at the June 18 meeting and offered observations and recommendations related to the district’s 2019 Bond program.

“We’ve had a lot of substantial construction completed,” Deakyne said to the board. “We’ve got a lot more coming. There are a lot of moving pieces and it’s good to get all hands on deck and pay attention.”

Watch the presentation below.

“Mr. Deakyne, thank you so much to you and your board members who are here,” said Trustee Melody Fowler following the presentation. “I don’t think people realize how many hours and hours and hours you and your board put into things like this. We depend on you to be our eyes and boots on the ground for all of these different bond programs that are going on. I just want to say thank you.”

The CBOC was established to provide transparency and enhance public confidence in the use of proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by Arlington ISD voters on Nov. 5, 2019. The 2019 Bond package includes $966 million to improve facilities, provide access and equity for all students and build on the progress recognized through the 2014 Bond program. This bond package is addressing needs in four areas: facilities; transportation; safety, security and technology; and fine arts.

The CBOC accomplishes its charge by following the district’s bond program progress and reporting its findings and recommendations to the Arlington ISD Board of Trustees (read the CBOC’s charge). The oversight committee meets on a quarterly basis to receive updates on implementation progress and tour bond construction projects and then develops its annual report.

This was the third annual CBOC report for the 2019 Bond.
