Citizens’ Committee

The 2019 Bond package is a result of a recommendation made to the Board of Trustees by the district’s Bond Planning Committee. The Committee was made up of local citizens, parents, and civic and business leaders. Members met several times in 2018 and early 2019 to consider the growth and educational needs of all Prosper ISD students. The Committee reviewed demographic projections, district financial information, existing facility conditions, and had the opportunity to tour existing campuses before prioritizing potential bond projects.

Charge of the Bond Planning Committee

  • Consider the educational needs of all students and align with the district's mission, vision and goals

  • Represent the entire community, its values and perceptions in the facility-planning process

  • Assess and prioritize the district's current and long-term facility needs

  • Consider the district's current financial position and funding methods to develop a recommendation that is fiscally sound

  • Report their finding to the Board of Trustees including recommendations as to how to progress with addressing the district's facility needs
