To the Editor:
KISD is out-of-bounds. Just received a “Pro-Mark Research” polling call regarding KISD’s future bond proposals — from $0.6 billion to $225 million. The survey was undoubtedly paid for by KISD.
This is just another example of KISD administrative top-heavy nature.
School security and accessibility (ADA compliance) is not questioned, although LGBTQ accommodations are.
The target 100 members of the Bond Steering Committee is woefully unsubscribed and represented. I posit that half of its current 52-member composition have no children attending KISD.
The weightings of their decisions need be re-evaluated: 31 percent to benefit students is woefully lacking. Parents all — get off your “4th Point of Contact” and attend the Dec. 12 KISD meeting; this also goes for property owners and Fort Hood/soldier parents of KISD students.
I fear there is a top-heavy distribution of the existing KISD budget, which hurts the kids. Quality of our education can be measured by metrics — all our schools should and can be first-rate. “The proof of the pudding is in the tasting”: We definitely are not there yet.
