Facilities Survey from AISD

April 25th, 2014

As many of you know, there have been lots of conversations recently regarding Doss and the Facilities Master Plan.  We are working closely with the district to devise a solution for overcrowding not only at Doss but within our vertical team and across the district.  The following is a message from the Executive Director of Facilities, Paul Turner.  We hope you will take a moment to complete the survey:

The AISD Department of Facilities has developed a survey that will help guide us as we move toward completion of the Facility Master Plan.

We are asking AISD staff, parents and community stakeholders to take a few minutes to help us identify FMP alternatives on issues such as overcrowding and under-enrollment, as well as to identify the needs at campuses and other AISD facilities.

Your input is vital to this process. Please take the time to complete the anonymous survey below. Also, feel free to forward the survey links below, provided in both English and Spanish, to other stakeholders.

English: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2014-Facilities
Spanish: https://es.surveymonkey.com/s/Instalaciones_2014

Thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely,

Paul Turner
Executive Director of Facilities
Austin Independent School District
