The Killeen Independent School District board of trustees will review an agreement with area entities to create a crime reduction partnership during a daytime workshop meeting Tuesday.

According to the district’s agenda, Killeen ISD Superintendent John Craft will speak Tuesday about the district’s potential involvement in the Committee for Crime Solutions - a partnership with the city of Killeen, Bell County, KISD, and the Fort Hood U.S. Army Garrison to study and recommend solutions to reduce crime in the area.

The KISD school board discussed earlier versions of the proposed agreement during an April school board meeting and a June joint workshop with the Killeen City Council.

“This MOA is an effort to formalize the partnership with the participating entities to engage in a conversation to brainstorm ways that we can all work together to make our community safer,” Craft said about the proposed partnership at a board meeting in April.

The agreement was tabled in April at the request of KISD board member Corbett Lawler who said he had reservations about the wording of the agreement.

“The conversation is beautiful, and I believe it needs to be had, but I’m bothered by the language of the decision-making item,” Lawler said in April.

Revisions were recommended and discussed during a joint workshop with the Killeen City Council on June 15.

Representatives from the city of Killeen and Bell County have already signed the revised agreement, according to the agenda.

Other items discussed during Tuesday’s meeting include:

Targeted technology internal audit report

Update on KISD board single member districts

CISCO SmartNet Renewal Agreement

Quarterly and annual investment reports

Annual review and adoption of board policy

Annual review of qualified investment brokers/dealers
