A committee working to recommend a bond proposal for Alvord ISD will seek public input at a meeting Monday.

The Alvord ISD Community Facilities Committee has met four times over the past couple of months to develop a draft proposal for facility needs they would like to see addressed in a bond election.

The committee, which is made up of community members, two school board members and Superintendent Randy Brown, has been working to identify and prioritize the district’s facility needs. A bond proposal is expected to be presented to the school board next month for a possible bond election in May.

The public is invited to provide feedback on the draft proposal before that recommendation is made to the board.

The meeting is at 7 p.m. Monday in the Alvord Elementary School gymnasium.

Voters in the district rejected a $13.8 million bond package this past May by a vote of 404-116. The package would have funded numerous facility upgrades, including additional classrooms and a gymnasium at the elementary school, a gym and restrooms at the middle school, an administration building, renovations and additions to the vocational ag building at the high school and various athletic upgrades and additions.
