invite you to share with Growth at CISD could spell bond issue By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Growth is nothing new to Comal County or the Comal Independent School District The CISD Board of Trustees heard the basics of a report Thursday night ftom the LongRange Facilities Study Committee that said permanent new build ings within a longrange plan were the best meth ods to deal with the population growth and that a bond issue was the best way for pay for it The committee made up of various persons in the district went to numerous public forums and surveyed people The overwhelming choice was to build new facilities followed by use of tem porary classrooms and yearround multitrack schools third Committee reports findings to board The committee used growth projections from a consultant in Austin that said over students will attend the district by the year 2000 The CISD has grown from students in 198889 to this year a 30 percent increase Robert Loop chairman of the committee showed a slide with growth projections at each school and their capacity based on current enroll ment and estimated enrollment by 2000 if no schools were added or attendance zones changed This committee came to the consensus that building permanent facilities was the preferred method for solving our facilities needs through the year Loop told the board Officials with Barnes Architects who were under contract to develop a master plan present ed their plan The plan called for organizing cam puses into elementary Early Childhood intermediate middle 78th and high schools each with maximum size stan dards Longrange plans for building included three intermediate schools and a middle school and additions to Canyon MS Canyon HS Smithson Valley HS and Frazier Elementary Each of these building projects would start based on when existing schools meet their capacity levels The committee believes that a bond issue is necessary to fund the facilities required for the growth in he said million worth of new facilities and upgrades could be proposed over the next six years However this districts bond expert has explained to us that due to legal limits on bonded indebtedness this list should be cut to approximately Committee members Bill Smith Becky Krueger Sylvia Benitez and Fred Lamprecht each spoke to the board as did Jay Barnes an edu cation consultant urging the board to consider growth and the plan to deal with it Board members thanked the committee for their work and agreed to read the plan draft The board decided to address the plan and consider possible courses of
