CISD approves pay raises By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Employees of the Comal Independent School District will 9ee pay raises for the upcoming 1994-95 school year board trustees said Monday. The board voted 7-0 to give employees raises. Teachers, nurses and librarians will see a 3.8 percent average salary increase with each step in the pay scale increasing $500 above the 1993-94 salary schedule. A beginning teacher with a bachelor’s degree will start at $20,500 for the 1994-95 year. That figure rises with each year of experience. CISD administrators said the package totaled around $650,000, including new teachers. They added that the CISD still ranked low compared to other districts in the area. “We were tied for 14th as far beginning teachers go out of the 16 (area districtsX” said Superintendent Jerry Major. “This (raise) will not make much of a dent (in the standings),” added Dr. Caroline Wemli, Director of Personnel. Personnel such as cafeteria, maintenance, transportation and para-professionals will receive a 5% increase while others, including administration will receive a 3% increase, around a $240,000 package they said The raise for personnel such cafeteria, maintenance and those considered at the lower ends of the district pay scale could increase. Board members will look at that in another meeting after member Douglas Kirk brought up the fact that a percentage increase for those at bottom levels of the pay scale would nox make much difference, roughly $35 a month in take-home pay for some. In other .action, the board approved seven new positions for the upcoming school year, including assistant principals at Frazier and Comal elemen-taries. Administrators would still like to sec staff additions in areas such as art, music, physical education and counselors in order to maintain what Dr. Wemli called a “well-balanced curriculum.” “I don’t know how long we can continue to maintain programs we have in place and improve them,” said Dr. Mqor. “Once we take a step back, it might take two or three years to recover from that ” Herald Zeitung photo by JOHN HUSETH Union Pacific officials tour th# damaga left behind yesterday afternoon after 10 cars derailed, dumping a considerable amount of coal on the ground near the tracko near FM 306 In New Braunfels.There were no Injuries in connection with the derailment.
