All faculty, staff, students, parents and community members are invited to attend the meetings. The agenda for each meeting will cover the six topics listed below.

Agenda

  • Bond 2015 Updates — Get an update about the status of various projects such as construction of new schools, renovations and technology upgrades at campuses.
  • Reconfiguration — Learn about grade span changes, building conversions and campuses that will be combined. Hear about boundary and school zone changes to optimize enrollment capacity and balance enrollment between schools. These changes will take effect next school year (2018-2019).
  • Superintendent Search — Hear more about the superintendent search process, including how and when the District will gather public input.
  • Strategic Design Goals — Learn how the community-informed strategic planning process created the five-year plan, which the District implemented in 2017. Hear about the set priorities and how these help focus energy and resources in a manner that ensures community stakeholders and District staff are working toward common goals such as providing students with the support they need to prepare them for their future.
  • Challenges — Gain insight about the District’s current financial status. Understand how the state funds public schools like AISD and how enrollment as well as absenteeism impact funding.
  • Highlights — Learn more about the new campuses set to open in 2018-2019 and how reconfigured grade spans can effectively balance educational demands to serve students better.

The District grouped the meetings by vertical clusters of schools (e.g., early childhood/prekindergarten schools, elementary campuses, intermediate and middle schools that feed into a high school). Community members should attend the meeting at the high school located within the geographic area that they live in. Each meeting will have information specific to their vertical cluster of schools.

Schedule

  • February 8: Aldine HS @ 6:30 p.m.
  • February 15: Davis HS @ 6:30 p.m.
  • February 20: MacArthur HS @ 6:30 p.m.
  • March 22: Nimitz HS @ 6:30 p.m.
  • April 5: Eisenhower HS @ 6:30 p.m.

The meetings will provide direct contact with community members and give District leaders a chance to listen to local issues and concerns.
