Governance

Board of Education

The Board of Education is the primary governing body for the 1997 and 2001 bond programs. In this capacity, the Board has selected the construction management structure to facilitate the implementation of bond programming. The Board of Trustees give final approval of schematic designs, bids, contracts, and expenditures.

Superintendent

The Superintendent provides oversight, advice and authority in the implementation of the bond programs.

Citizens Oversight Committee

The Citizens Oversight Committee (COC) monitors and observes the plans and processes of the bond programs to assure the Board and public that the representations made to secure passage of the bond programs are met. The COC currently has 23 members, representing every district within SAISD and business and community organizations. COC members are appointed by District Trustees.

The COC meets monthly to discuss the current status of bond projects. COC meetings are open to the public, and offer an opportunity for other citizens to share comments with the Committee. Meeting notifications and summaries can be found in the Bond Calendar on the Reports page of this site.

Construction Management Department

The Construction Management Department, led by Kamal ElHabr, Associate Superintendent for Facilities Services, is responsible for the day-to-day implementation of the bond programs, such as the development and implementation of project delivery strategies and procurement plans, management of Team Leaders and architects, contract administration, and enforcement of quality construction and timely progress. As such, the CMD has the authority and responsibility for all management decisions regarding the bond programs except for that authority specifically retained by the Board and Superintendent.
