The committee that developed this bond proposal was made up of local citizens, parents, and civic and business leaders. Members met eight times over the course of four months to consider the educational needs of all Abilene ISD students. The committee reviewed the district-wide facility assessment, results from a community survey, district financial information, tax impact scenarios, and toured several existing campuses before developing and prioritizing potential project considerations.
