Braunfels Herald Zeitung invites its readers to sub nut items to Stanuntisch According to the Sophienburg Archives and members of the German communi ty Stammtisch represents a sit ting place for members of the com munity to gather and share the days happenings We invite you to share with The general consensus at Monday nights pub lic hearing on the Comal Independent School Districts facilities requirements was that its not the bond issue but the trust issue that is at the core of CISDs problems Several of the patrons that spoke on the facili ties requirements made reference to the lack of trust that patrons have in the information pro vided by the administration However after hear ing Superintendent Jerry Majors presentation comparing CISD to other nearby districts at least half the size of CISD they were generally sup portive of maintaining quality education in the dis trict at reasonable costs Major said CISD has the biggest enrollment the second largest budget a district with fewer stu dents has a larger gets the least amount of money from the state percent compared to the district with a larger budget and fewer stu dents that gets nearly 71 is the largest in The measure is what do you spend per fixed on child CISD is dead the same square miles has the second largest number of campuses is third in number of employees and has the highest ratio of students to employ ees The measure is what do you spend per said CISD is dead last This is based on our budget that is coming up We spent and nobody else is in the so were dead last So you can look at these numbers and others from across the state and say wow youve really done a good job on less money than anybody else or is our goal to spend less in every cat egory than anybody else Peter Garcia also spoke at the meeting and made a pledge to work with the district to close ly examine the budget over the next six months and to support a bond issue if the situation does in fact warrant it Were not convinced that every resource has been looked said Garcia Year round school we never talk about possibly employing teachers year around and increasing their salaries that w CISD Superintendent Jerry Major a b o u progress and change Unless some demonstra tion comes from the school district about utiliz ing all existing you are going to have a heck of a time passing a bond The board indicated that they were receptive to his suggestion and expressed their appreciation of Garcias commitment of time and effort Responding to the year around school issue Jim Middleton president of the school board said it had been considered but would buy only about three years of space in facilities and would increase operating costs significantly The point was also made that the state funding is limited to nine months and the district would have to pick up the additional salary requirements Middleton also said the two high schools were too small to have multitrack sessions and there fore the secondary students would be on a dif ferent schedule than elementary students which is difficult for parents He said these problems were not unsolvable but there were significant difficulties with this option Although there were about 54 people in the audience only about 19 were not employees or spouses of employees in the district Two other meetings seeking suggestions from the public on what can be done to alleviate the facilities requirements and explaining the alter natives that have been considered are scheduled One will be held in Garden Ridge and one iri New Braunfels HeraldZeitung photo by JOHN

residents and business men spoke out on the issue Representa tives of both Lafarge and TXI Cement spoke to city council members as well as members of the local chapter of Securing a Free Environment The issue was brought to the council by Paul Pennington a member of said he had come to the council on behalf of the Sierra Club He said members of the Sierra Club have requested the state of Texas
