Thank you AISD Community!!
We want to thank the community for their support of the district bond election earlier this month, and we are excited about the next phases in the process and about how they will help improve student success.
One of our objectives in this process is to make sure we keep you, our stakeholder, informed of the progress along the way. We have begun the early stages of planning by identifying the next steps and by setting up important meetings and bond-related committees:
- We have begun meeting with the architects to work on the initial plans and to set a timeline for each individual project that was in the bond package.
- We are in the process of forming a Bond Oversight Committee that will include approximately five community members, one AISD school board member, three teachers, and two students. We believe it is vital to gain the perspective of each of these stakeholder groups, including the students who have their own unique point-of-view when planning for their future.
- During the programming stage of the process, architects will meet with district staff, including teachers, who are related to the specific projects.
- We are developing internal controls to determine the district employees who will oversee specific elements of the process to ensure district and community expectations are being properly met. This will include ensuring the best interests of the school district and community are upheld, helping maintain the financial elements of the building and renovation processes, and providing on-site management to ensure accuracy and efficiency.
We thank you again for supporting AISD and investing in our children’s future by making sure they have access to the best education possible. Please continue to visit the 2019 Bond website for updates throughout the different stages of the bond process, and please let us know if you have any questions about the process.
2019 AISD Bond Referendum
The 2019 Bond will not increase the tax rate for Angleton ISD taxpayers because of industry growth within the AISD boundaries, and the overall impact on AISD property owners will be a 7-cent reduction in the school district tax rate due to new legislation.
The board approved the recommendations of the Bond Advisory Committee, a group of 27 community leaders, parents and local business owners from a diverse cross-section of the community. The committee met five times over three months to review the information provided by the school district and industry professionals, analyze current AISD facility conditions and needs, and tour other school districts’ facilities. They also provided input to district administration before ultimately finalizing which projects would be presented to the school board for consideration as part of the bond referendum.
The $90 million in bonded debt can be raised without increasing a household’s property tax rate.
