Community Bond Advisory Committee (CBAC)
The Katy area has seen intense growth in the past two decades, largely due to the success of its school district. Families are moving to the District in droves, leading to a projected enrollment of nearly 100,000 students by 2026-- making Katy ISD the fastest growing large school district in Texas, with the majority of this growth taking place in its northwest quadrant.
Katy ISD Board of Trustees approved the formation of a Community Bond Advisory Committee (CBAC) last January (2020), to assess campus and facility needs, as well as develop a bond package — should the group determine one is needed.
Committee membership was solicited and identified last January and February (2020). Committee membership includes: current resident living within the District boundaries, availability to attend a minimum of 10 meetings, and a commitment to share and present information about the process and outcomes. The Committee is comprised of approximately 130 decision-making members, consisting of parents, business owners, senior citizens, partner institutions, professional and civic organizations, and other community members.
All CBAC meetings are held on the floor of the District's Merrell Center (LMC). The LMC facility has a capacity of 6,000. All meetings are socially distanced, and participants are required to wear facial coverings.
The Committee structure is designed to be accessible to the entire community. Individuals who are unable to serve on the committee are encouraged to observe committee deliberations in-person by participating in the “gallery” section of the meetings . The gallery is in the stands of the LMC.
