Planning Process and Community Committee Members
How did Pleasant Grove ISD determine the scope of the bond package?
A Community Committee on School Facilities met six times from November 2021 to February 2022 to study the district’s needs and made a recommendation to the Pleasant Grove ISD Board of Trustees on Friday, February 11, 2022. The Community Committee on School Facilities consisted of parents, grandparents, and business and community leaders who live in Pleasant Grove ISD and are vested in the community. The Community Committee on School Facilities reviewed all current Pleasant Grove ISD facilities, financial data, current academic needs, and projected student growth before presenting a recommendation to the Board of Trustees.
Additionally, the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) provided a comprehensive Facilities Assessment in November 2021. District staff provided facilities input through a district-wide staff survey.
Committee Members: Michael Galvan -C-, Ashley Gibbs, Edward Gill, Jaren Horton, Cole Meador - C, Brock McCorkle, Kelli Phillips, Cheney Pruitt, Barbara Washington, Aven Williamson, Jennifer Wright.
