The commission will recommend ways that the next Legislature can reform and improve the state’s system of paying for public education.

Conley Johnson oversees the day-to-day financial operations for AISD and is responsible for the overall fiscal condition of the district.

The CFO supervises both local general funds and state, federal and private grant funding. Conley Johnson also oversees construction management in facilities, food services and transportation.
