The Round Rock ISD Board of Trustees is asking for volunteers to participate in a committee to evaluate and prioritize the district’s needs in preparation for a possible bond election.
The Board approved a Citizens Bond Committee (CBC) charter during its Jan. 18 regular meeting. The charter is the first step in preparing for a bond election in November 2018 or May 2019.
According to the charter, the CBC will consist of three subcommittees:
- The Districtwide Subcommittee will focus on safety, technology and instructional programs for the entire district.
- The Growth Subcommittee will focus on facility needs to address growth in the district. This could include new schools, land, additions and renovations.
- The Capital Renewal and Replacement Subcommittee will focus on components of existing facility infrastructure.
The three subcommittees will meet as often as needed to review information and presentations and create a draft report of their findings to present to the board no later than June 21 for a potential November bond election or Jan. 17, 2019 for a potential May 2019 bond election.
Round Rock citizens who are interested in participating in the CBC are asked to submit an application here by Feb. 12 at 11:59 p.m.
“Improving the educational environment for our students and identifying and addressing critical needs for our schools should be a community effort,” Superintendent Steve Flores said in a press release. “We want our future to be a collective vision and look forward to having these important conversations with our community on how we can best make improvements.”
