Community Facilities Advisory Committee

The Community Facilities Advisory Committee is an important ad hoc advisory committee of individuals throughout Amarillo ISD and the Amarillo community who work together to develop a long-range facilities plan for Amarillo ISD. Committee members bring a unique perspective and expertise that will be an important part of this process.

A comprehensive facilities study has been completed in AISD. This committee will continue to discuss needs our District is facing as our schools continue to age and as we experience enrollment shifts and new program requirements.

AISD would like to thank committee members for their commitment to our schools and our community.
