Board Approves the Formation of a Bond Advisory Committee (BAC)

Superintendent Dr. Scott Muri (center) introduces Bond Advisory Committee co-chairs Lewis Gissel (left) and David Slattery at the committee’s initial meeting at Hunters Creek Elementary on May 3.
Based on the Bond Oversight Committee’s recommendation, a 96-member Long Range Facilities Committee (LRF) has spent the last seven months studying and evaluating SBISD facilities, aided by consultants AECOM. The LRF delivered a preliminary report to the Board of Trustees in March, finding that the district’s facilities needs approached the $1 billion mark.

Memorial High School junior Charles Fenn participates in the Wednesday, May 3, Bond Advisory Committee meeting at Hunters Creek Elementary.

The Board heard the report and tasked district staff with forming a Bond Advisory Committee (BAC) to consider the recommendation of a bond package based on the work of the LRF. On April 24, the Board approved the charge, composition and membership of the 103-member BAC.

The BAC kicked off on Wednesday, May 3, at Hunters Creek Elementary, the first of seven meetings. The BAC is to deliver its recommendations to the Board of Trustees by June 30. Trustees will review and can act on the recommendations, or take no action.
