Citizen's Bond Planning Committee

C F B I S D Citizen's Bond Planning Committee

The Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD Board of Trustees is committed to the district’s mission: to empower scholars to acquire life-long knowledge, skills, and values that prepare them to compete in the
world marketplace while contributing to their community.

The Board of Trustees also has been proactively planning for the district’s future and has been studying the district’s projected growth and other aging and evolving facility needs. This, in conjunction with the district’s belief in creating a collaborative culture in which all stakeholders may be a part of discussions regarding the district’s future, led the district to organize the Citizens Bond Planning Committee (CBPC). A committee is an invaluable group of community members formed to study the facility needs of the school district and ultimately present a recommendation to the CFBISD Board of Trustees for consideration.

Obtaining different perspectives from the entire community is very important to the process, and approximately 60 citizens from a variety of geographic areas and backgrounds make up the CBPC. Members of the committee will study a district-wide facilities assessment, enrollment projections, financial data, results of a community-wide survey, and more in order to make the best recommendation.
