Community Bond Advisory Committee
Thank you to our Katy ISD community! Hundreds of you answered the call and submitted an application.
UPDATE: The Bond Committee meetings have been temporarily postponed as we navigate COVID-19, and in-person and virtual learning. Next steps and a new meeting schedule are anticipated in December 2020.
The Katy area has seen intense growth in the past two decades, largely due to the success of its school district. Families are moving to the District in droves, leading to a projected enrollment of more than 100,000 students by 2027, making Katy ISD the fastest growing large school district in Texas, with the majority of this growth taking place in its northwest quadrant.
Katy ISD Board of Trustees approved the formation of a Community Bond Advisory Committee (CBAC) at their January 20, 2020 Regular Board Meeting. The purpose of the Committee was to explore current and future campus and facility needs, as well as develop a bond package — should the group determine one is needed.
Committee membership, as well as a Committee Chairperson, were solicited and identified last January and February (2020). Committee membership included: current resident living within the District boundaries, availability to attend a minimum of 10 meetings, and a commitment to share and present information about the process and outcomes.
The Committee structure is designed to be accessible to the entire community. It is comprised of a 150-member decision-making group consisting of parents, business owners, senior citizens, students, partner institutions, professional and civic organizations, and other community members. Individuals who are unable to serve on the committee are encouraged to observe committee deliberations in-person by participating in the “gallery” section of the meetings — a section reserved for those who wish to listen to committee presentations and discussions.
Due to COVID-19 the Committee process was delayed until 2021.
