1. Taxpayers' Dollars – please respond by February 29, 2024

Currently the AISD has the highest M&O rate of any ISD in Tarrant County. Staff has started budgeting for the paying of recapture (“Robin Hood”). How fiscally responsible should the board be with taxpayers' dollars and why? How high of a priority should fiscal responsibility be and why? What are your suggestions to be more fiscally responsible?

The school board must exercise prudence and due care with taxpayers' dollars. They are responsible and accountable to the taxpayers and have an obligation to safeguard taxpayer dollars by preventing wasteful spending. School districts are facing fiscal challenges that could have been avoided by eliminating wasteful spending. All expenses should be justified each year rather than increasing the budget. District spending is a crucial component of student success. The success of the students relies on every taxpayers dollars spent intentionally, efficiently and effectively.


2. Transgender – please respond by March 7, 2024

Which locker rooms/restrooms, etc., should transgender students be using? Should there be a District policy? Why or why not?


Transgender students should use the restrooms/locker rooms that corresponds to their biological sex. There should be a policy or regulation in place so the parents and administrators know what accommodations need to be implemented for the transgender students that don't feel comfortable or safe in using the restrooms/locker rooms that correspond to their biological sex.

Administrators and educators shouldn't be forced or put in a position to take it upon themselves in making these type of decisions.
