The Azle ISD Board of Trustees would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to all who tirelessly work to support our school district and those who spent their volunteer time to plan and promote the 2023 Azle ISD Bond. 

First and foremost, on behalf of the entire school community, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to the public for passing the 2023 school bond.  Your commitment to investing in our children’s education will undoubtedly shape the lives of countless students, empowering them to reach their full potential. We are humbled by your trust and will strive to make the most of this opportunity to provide an exceptional education experience.

Many thanks go to Superintendent Todd Smith and Assistant Superintendent Matt Adams, all Azle ISD administrators and employees, the Long Range Facilities Planning Committee, and the 2023 Bond Political Action Committee (PAC) for their invaluable support in the successful passing of Azle ISD’s 2023 bond. The dedication and efforts of these organizations and the citizens of Azle have made a significant impact on our community, ensuring a brighter future for our children and our local education system.

Superintendent Smith and Assistant Superintendent Adams have had unwavering commitment to our schools. Their tireless efforts in informing our community about the bond proposal deserve recognition. They presented to over 65 community organizations in a little over a month. Their leadership and vision have been instrumental in garnering support and rallying the community behind this crucial growth and safety plan. Their dedication to providing quality education and ensuring the best possible learning environment for our children is truly commendable.

We would also like to express gratitude to the Azle Education Foundation not only for their support of the bond, but for ensuring our teachers have innovative teaching grants to reach above and beyond the norm in their classrooms. Their generous contributions and active involvement in raising awareness about the importance of investing in our schools have been instrumental in the success of our teachers and students. Their commitment to the betterment of our community is truly inspiring and their efforts have undoubtedly made a lasting impact on the future of our educational institutions and children.

Thank you to the Long Range Facilities Planning Committee and the PAC for their strategic planning and advocacy. The Long Range Facilities Planning Committee members’ dedication to careful planning for the future of Azle ISD has been a years-long exercise. The PAC’s advocacy and mobilization efforts promoting this bond, along with their ability to engage with the community and elected officials, have been crucial in ensuring its success. The commitment of the community volunteers on these two committees to improving our schools and investing in the education of our children is truly commendable.

The passing of this school growth bond when other bonds in neighboring communities did not is a testament to the power of collaboration and community engagement. It is heartening to witness the collective efforts of these individuals and organizations, who have come together to prioritize the future of our children and the quality of public education they receive. This achievement will undoubtedly have a lasting positive impact on our community, fostering an environment where our children can thrive and reach their full potential.

Again, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to all and thank the community of Azle for their support. We are truly fortunate to have such passionate and committed individuals, organizations, and our community working towards the betterment of our education system.

Gratefully,

Sarah Bennett

Board Secretary
