Katy, TX News (January 30, 2017) – Dear Katy ISD Parents/Guardians, Staff & Community Members,
It’s no secret that Katy ISD is considered one of the most successful school districts in the country due to a robust curriculum and the wealth of opportunities available to our students. Likewise, our parents and community members take great pride in supporting our kids and schools and value the role we all play in building the legacy.
As we have all seen, with great success comes rapid growth. For the past several decades Katy ISD has been planning for it and closely monitoring student projections presented by our demographers. Trustees have been engaged in ongoing discussions focused on how best to continue providing the education our students need for a successful future, in light of the fast flow of development in this area. This is especially true in the southwest and northwest quadrants of the District. Earlier this month, the Board approved a charter for a Community Bond Advisory Committee that would be responsible for developing and providing a proposed 2017 bond referendum for the Board’s consideration.
However, for a bond package to effectively meet the needs of students and families, it has to be community driven, as we hope this one will be. Remember, Katy ISD and its future belongs to you!
If you would like to serve on the Katy ISD 2017 Community Bond Advisory Committee, the Board and I invite you to complete a Committee application, which will be available online at www.katyisd.org, beginning Wednesday, February 1, 2017. As members of the Katy community, let’s continue to play an active role in supporting the children of the next generation. Join me and Katy ISD, as we continue building our legacy!
Lance Hindt, Ed.D.
