Community Meetings
As part of the district’s commitment to communicate the progress of the bond to the community, we will continue updating you to be sure you are aware of opportunities for public engagement around key project milestones.

A Campus Architectural Team will be formed for your campus ahead of the scheduled start date.

CAT meetings are already taking place for all active projects as each team works through its respective phase of planning and design.

Larger community meetings designed to allow opportunities for education, as well as input, will be held for each project as they move through the various design stages.

Finally, as projects move into the construction phase, milestone ceremonies including groundbreakings and ribbon cuttings will be held.

You are welcome to join us for the following events:

  • Wednesday, August 29 – T.A. Brown Elementary School Site Dedication
  • Thursday, August 30 – Menchaca Elementary Groundbreaking
  • Thursday, September 6 – Doss Elementary Groundbreaking

Additional information will be shared for each event in the coming weeks.
