Community Information Sessions

The community information sessions will be facilitated as “come and go” events where community members can review the proposals and participate in a proposal gallery walk at their leisure. Community members will be asked to complete a survey on each proposal to further inform the planning committee’s work.  In addition, the five proposals will be posted on the AISD website for feedback from parents and community members.  We will also solicit feedback from CACs, faculty members and high school principals.
