Additional Feedback Opportunities

This feedback opportunity is part of the work of the district’s Visioning Committee, which is a continuation of the district’s Strategic Design work and is helping outline the vision of CISD for the next five to ten years and beyond. The Strategic Design process defined the district and led to the development of the core values of redefining success, great teaching, authentic relationships and collective engagement. The Visioning process builds upon this work, and the work of the 2019-2020 Facilities Committee, to help CISD  plan for the future.
 
Results of this feedback will be shared with the CISD Board of Trustees along with recommendations to move forward with Bond Committee work for the fall of 2022.
