The Killeen Independent School District’s bond steering committee is looking for public input on the potential bond issue the district wants placed on the May 5 ballot.
To that end, a community survey will be conducted by KISD over the next few weeks. The survey will be conducted by phone, to a random sampling of those living in the district, said Terry Abbott, KISD chief communications officer, on Monday.
The results of that survey will be passed along to the bond steering committee, to be included in its recommendation to the KISD board of trustees.
An overview of potential projects is on the agenda for the bond steering committee meeting Thursday.
“Construction projects for both older instructional facilities and potential new instructional facilities will be discussed,” Abbott said.
The committee of 52 members will also be provided with information on bonding capacity and tax impact scenarios.
“Various potential bond election scenarios will be discussed as well as the associated tax levies that would be applicable should a potential bond be approved by voters,” Abbott said.
Another item on the committee’s agenda involves an overview of KISD finances, and covering how school finance works. The committee will break into small groups for some discussions, then share their views in a large group, and have a question and answer period.
The public is invited to attend the meeting, which will be video recorded and available for viewing on www.killeenisdbsc.org
Also posted on this website are documents from last week’s meeting, and the video of that session. Questions and comments can also be submitted via the website.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. Thursday at East Ward Elementary, 1608 E. Rancier Ave., in Killeen.
