Letter from Mr. Edwards

Dear AISD Community,

AISD respects and honors the outcome of this election and appreciates the continued faith our community places in the district. We will work to provide quality facilities that meet student growth needs while always keeping in mind the tax rate on homeowners and businesses in our community. For our Wildcat family, we will continue to strive to be transparent in our communication and, above all else, meet the needs of our students.

Now that the 2022 bond elections are over, I want to thank all of the members of our District Citizens Advisory Committee for their work on crafting the proposal that was on the ballot. Our committee was made up of citizens from many backgrounds, including teachers, administrators, school board members, parents, and community members.

Members were chosen in several ways. Each campus was asked to provide a representative. Some members were asked to serve by the district, and some members volunteered to serve. AISD asked for volunteers to join the committee last spring through social media platforms and an ad in the local newspaper. There was only one requirement to be able to serve on the committee; we asked that individuals live within the boundaries of Angleton ISD.

The committee met five times in a four-month period and provided lots of great discussion and ideas on how to move our district forward. They also rejected some of the proposals the district made and, instead, moved toward the proposal that was voted on yesterday. Their work was exemplary.

I hope you will join me in congratulating and thanking the members of our committee for representing our community so well. I, along with the 1000 employees and 6900 students of Angleton ISD, can never express our appreciation for their service in helping our children.

Phil Edwards

AISD Superintendent
