COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The College Station ISD Board of Trustees met Tuesday, January 17.  The following discussions and actions are of note. 


 2023 CSISD Legislative Priorities: The board formally adopted its legislative priorities for the 88th Texas Legislative session.  

The priorities includes the topics of school finance, the state accountability system, school safety, teacher recruitment/retention, charter schools, vouchers, ballot language, and local control/governance.

The entire legislative priorities document is linked below.


Acceptance of $1,000,000 Donation for School Safety:  The board approved the acceptance of an unsolicited donation of $1,000,000 from the Donald and Donna Adam Family Foundation to be used to enhance school safety and security.

“This extremely generous gift from the Adam Family Foundation will go a long way in enhancing the safety and security of our schools,” CSISD superintendent Mike Martindale said.  “The safety of our students and staff is our top priority and we are appreciative of this substantial donation to help us in our on-going effort.”

The Adam Family Foundation will be releasing a press release regarding the gifts to College Station and Bryan ISDs Wednesday morning.

Adoption of the School Calendar:  The board approved the school calendar for the 2023-2024 school year.

Annual Fiscal Financial Report:  Rebecca Goldstein, a representative of Weaver & Tidwell, L.L.P. gave a report on the annual financial and compliance audit for the fiscal year ending August 31, 2022.

The auditors issued an “unmodified opinion” on the report meaning the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the district in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. In addition there were no material findings in compliance or internal controls.

The General Fund shows expenses exceed revenue by $574,795 compared to the original adopted budget of a $2.9 million deficit.  The audited budget shows the district’s fund balance - or savings account - stands at $34.08 million.

Purchases/Bid Approvals:

  • Approved the purchase of three minivans from Sterling Kia in the amount not to exceed $122,618.78 using Federal Head Start Transportation Safety Funds.
  • Approved the renewal of Schoology as a districtwide learning management system from PowerSchool in the amount of $78,000 using Instructional Materials Allotment funds.
