The passage of the May 2015 Bond Election made the fifth elementary possible. Superintendent Derek Citty said it became necessary for the district to expand the number of attendance zones to reduce pressure at the Coder, McCall, Stuard and Vandagriff elementary campuses.
Dr. Citty said AISD Administration and its Board of Trustees received significant input from parents and community members during the decision-making process. “It was helpful to hear their thoughts, concerns and suggestions as we worked to arrive at the best possible solution,” he said.

In the 84th Texas Legislative Session, House Bill 2804 was passed and signed into law in spring 2015. This statute made significant changes to the state public school accountability system. A big part of these changes was the creation of an “A-F” rating label for both district and campus performance.
While these changes won’t be formally applied to districts or campuses until the 2017-18 school year, the law requires the Commissioner of Education submit a preliminary/draft report to the legislature by January 1, 2017. This report shows what each district and campus would have received for four of the five domains using data from the 2015-16 school year.
The formal 2018 ratings will be in the form of A-F letter grades assigned for each district and campus in five domains. Guidance on interpreting these domains is found on the pages which follow as well as the summary scores for Aledo ISD. In addition, a link to further information related to this new system is found here. READ MORE.
