Longhorn Futures Committee

In March 2022, the Cedar Hill ISD Board of Trustees and administration convened a committee of Cedar Hill stakeholders to evaluate, assess, prioritize and report their findings on future capital project needs for the CHISD.

The Longhorn Futures Committee (LFC) is made up of a thorough cross-section of the CHISD community, which will include: 

  • Parents and non-parents

The LFC has convened a two times since its creation, and made one recommendation to the CHISD Board of Trustees. The LFC was reconvened in August 2023, following the failed May 2023 bond election.
