Board Approves Bond Oversight Committee

During the 2014 Bond campaign, the Board expressed its intent to implement additional procedures to ensure that all Bond Funds are spent on the 2014 Bond projects identified in the election.


The Committee is comprised of community members who will be advisory in nature and will meet at least quarterly. Their primary duties will be to review the progress of the construction and the expenditures associated with each project. The Committee's quarterly reports to the Board will be posted online.


"We appreciate these community volunteers who desire to partner with the District to ensure bond funds are spent as promised and in a manner that is wise and efficient," Board President Cary Hancock stated.


Questions for the Bond Oversight Committee may be emailed to bond14@birdvilleschools.net.
