Once the Master level was created, Bond took additional classes to receive course credits to reach the Master Official level.
TAPT Executive Secretary said, “The safety of Texas school children who ride yellow school buses to and from school each day depends on dedicated professionals like Mr. Bond. We appreciate the time and effort he expended to achieve this goal.” READ MORE.

Notice from Superintendent Citty
Bearcat Nation,
I need to inform you of a concern the District is having with a company named B & G Innovations of Grand Prairie, TX. This company is soliciting advertising dollars for spirit merchandise using the Bearcat Logo. The District has been in touch with this company on two occasions and has directed them to cease-and-desist in using our logo without the District’s consent. There is no business relationship between Aledo ISD and B & G Innovations. We have, through legal counsel, directed them to cease making these representations.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know at

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Best regards,
Derek Citty
