June 2010 Dear AISD Friends and Family, As representatives of the Community Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC), we are pleased to share with you the results of the recent Bond Programs Surveys. Thank you to those who responded to the survey – your feedback is important to the implementation of current and future bond programs and we truly appreciate your participation. The annual surveys, administered to parents, teachers and staff at campuses with recently completed renovations and improvements, allow us to receive feedback from the community on the progress of the 2004 and 2008 Bond Programs at an individual facility level. Once the survey is complete, AISD staff, contractors and the CBOC go through a deliberate process to review and respond to the feedback provided by the community. The results are first compiled into a report for the review of a subcommittee of the CBOC. After reviewing, the committee meets with AISD staff, including AISD Construction Management Director Curt Shaw, to analyze and discuss on a campus-by-campus basis the specific feedback addressed in the survey. AISD project managers for each facility are informed of any concerns and work with contractors and staff at campuses to resolve the issues. The feedback from the surveys is being used not only to address any current issues but to also know what to be aware of as we continue to work on bond program projects and plan for future renovation and improvement ...

Dear AISD Friends and Family,


As representatives of the Community Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC), we are pleased to
share with you the results of the recent Bond Programs Surveys. Thank you to those who
responded to the survey – your feedback is important to the implementation of current and
future bond programs and we truly appreciate your participation.

The annual surveys, administered to parents, teachers and staff at campuses with recently
completed renovations and improvements, allow us to receive feedback from the community
on the progress of the 2004 and 2008 Bond Programs at an individual facility level.

Once the survey is complete, AISD staff, contractors and the CBOC go through a deliberate
process to review and respond to the feedback provided by the community. The results are
first compiled into a report for the review of a subcommittee of the CBOC. After reviewing, the
committee meets with AISD staff, including AISD Construction Management Director Curt
Shaw, to analyze and discuss on a campus-by-campus basis the specific feedback addressed
in the survey. AISD project managers for each facility are informed of any concerns and work
with contractors and staff at campuses to resolve the issues.

The feedback from the surveys is being used not only to address any current issues but to
also know what to be aware of as we continue to work on bond program projects and plan for
future renovation and improvement projects.

Please take time to review the following documents, included is a comprehensive report on the
number of responses per campus, results of quantifiable data, and feedback from AISD on
your comments organized by campus.

AISD Bond Programs Surveys Feedback
ALLISON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
 
The following issues were identified in the Bond Programs Survey concerning the renovations at
Allison Elementary School. To maintain confidentiality, these issues have been compiled without
using any participant’s exact comment. The feedback on specific issues outlined below was provided
by AISD staff and the project manager for renovations at your campus. Comments relating to topics
outside of the scope of the bond programs are not addressed in this feedback.

Survey participant comments are identified in bold and are immediately followed by AISD feedback
on each comment.


Safety/Security Issues
• Building materials were left at the school after the completion of the project. Who is in
charge of picking up the job site to ensure the campus is safe?

At the request of AISD’s Service Center, two stacks of glazed structural tile were left on school
grounds, between the tennis courts and Roland Johnson Drive, the Service Center picked them
up the week of March 24. The project manager is unaware of any additional problems relative to
building materials left at the site. If the problem still exists, please contact the project manager
Andrew Clements at 414-8948.

Not Meeting Needs/Additional Needs

• The pick up and drop off area need to be improved and there needs to be additional
security patrol.

When bond programs are being developed, campus administrators are provided with the
opportunity to submit requests for any campus improvements. In addition, facility condition
assessments are undertaken to determine what improvements are needed on a campus. These
assessments, along with the requests submitted by the campus administrators, are then studied
and considered by the Citizens’ Bond Advisory Committee charged with developing the scope of
work for any proposed bond program.
Community Involvement Issues

• I would like to know more about the bond programs.

General bond program information, as well as specific project information for all AISD campuses
and facilities, is available at www.TheAppleAtWork.com. The District encourages all interested
parties to sign up for bond information email updates. The bond hotline 512-414-BOND (2663)
may be called for any questions or comments. A response is provided within 48 hours. This
number is also posted on the website.

Once a year, in the spring/summer, a detailed insert on bond programs is distributed in the
Austin American-Statesman and Ahora Sí!. Electronic versions of current and past reports are
available at www.TheAppleAtWork.com.
