By ROSE MARIE EASH Staff Writer The New Braunfels Independent School District board of trustees unanimously voted to adopt Accelerated Block Scheduling for New Braunfels High School at Tuesday night's board meeting. The new schedule will be implementing in the 1994-95 school year but there will be no change in the graduation requirements for the Class of '95. All other classes will see increases in requirements for graduation. Students in the Advanced Program who want to participate in more than one extra-curricular activity all four years will have to take advantage of summer school, a zero hour course or correspondence course during their junior and senior years. The new schedule offers four 90 minute blocks in each school day which will allow students to earn eight credits per school year. There will be a IO minute change in the start of the school day so tutorials can begin at 7:35. There will be no change in the bus schedule. “We haven't had unanimous support, but we have bad a gre* deal of support and not tihic^ opposition from parents once they undeatood wh* we were doing," said John Turman, principal of NBHS. “We met with about 300 people * the high school and we had four public meetings. Ax the Lamar meeting we had 11 people come, at Lone Star there were 12, at Memorial there were 28 and we had 27 * the middle school." The state minimum requirement for gradu*ion remains * 21 credits and NBISD will maintain its minimum 22 credit requirement, however, Turman said the administration may come back to the board to raise the minimum att later date. In other busine* the board motorized a four dasroom addition to Seek Elementary and awarded a contract to Modem Builders, Inc., the low bidder, for roof work on Cirl Schurz and Seale Elementary. The administration recommended that the board areiit the Alamo Aret Narcotics Task Force by sharing information and other items concerning any evidence of gang activity in the New Braunfels ares, however they asked th* NBISD not participate in placing a uniformed officer on-aito for this purpose. “I think our job is ortucwine, not hi rina police officers," said Curies Bxadberry, superintendent.

I n a formal resolution adopted at its regularly scheduled February meeting, the board also endorsed the use of the innovative scheduling techniques now being discussed as the key implementation tool cf this new curriculum. According to Rusty Brockman, Chair of the Chamber’s Business/Education Partnership Committee, the    curricu lum is an outgrowth horn efforts by the Texas Business Education Coalition (IBBCX Texas Scholars Program, sod Tech Prep. "The Texas Scholars Program, now adopted by over IOO Texas School Districts, has been very effective and    to expand However, TBEC sought a way to quickly raise high rcV*^ Mw<h«A and expectations statewide and Education Commiwionrr Meno has certainly concurred," said Brockman.
