BURNET — Burnet Consolidated Independent School District Superintendent Keith McBurnett is hosting a Spring Community Forum on Feb. 12.

The event is 6:30 p.m. at the BCISD Central Office board room, 208 E. Brier St.

Among the topics are an update of the $26.75 million bond that was passed in November and a briefing of what school district officials are hearing about education from members of the state Legislature. McBurnet said attendees are welcome to ask questions about other topics.

“I still get questions every day about the bond,” he said. “It’s a great way to keep the community informed. There’s not a limit to the topics we’re going to talk about.”

Hosting the forums are one of his favorites part of his role as superintendent, McBurnett said.

“It’s where people can ask questions and we can have dialogue,” he said. “I’ve said we want to be transparent, and we also want to communicate effectively.”

The school district serves more than 2,000 students, and it takes many departments to fulfill the role of educating students, the superintendent said. So questions about any part of BCISD are welcome.

“I’ve done seven community forums since I’ve been here in three years,” McBurnett said. “The attendance has steadily increased.”
