responsibility off of Mr Inman so that he can concentrate on his other duties for Mayo said that he WORD President Guy Anderson and WORD member Zero Rivers will handle the publicity part of the agency and will issue statements to both the media and the public In an article that appeared in a San Anto nio paper Inman said the river levels were low and that the outfitters were taking their boats off

the history ol public education students in lowper forming schools have an option of receiving a public education grant to transfer to another school However officials from the New Braunfels Independent School District which the state has labeled low do not believe this will have an effect on the districts enrollment The has estab lished a public education grant PEG that averages about to allow a child assigned to a lowper forming school the opportunity to transfer to another school even if it means transferring out of the district The district of residence simply for wards the money to the receiving dis trict The district a parent chooses to send the child to cannot charge tuition in addition to the grant and it cannot charge more than the districts average expenditure per student With all the attention being given to homerule and charters public school choice is a change that impacts far more students and needs to be brought to the attention of said Jeff Judson President of the Texas Public Policy Foundation 1 am pleased that the legislators have chosen to empower parents over low performing government bureaucra cy New Braunfels High School in the New Braunfels Independent School District and Jack C Hays High School in the Hays Consolidated ISO were both rated as lowperforming due to the dropout rate of minority students NBISD Superintendent Charles Bradberry said he second definition of eligibility is currently applicable to the high school However he does not believe the grants will effect enroll ment Anybody wanting to transfer prob ably would have done it by he said Its kind of a moot question We dont see it impacting anyone any He said another reason he believes the enrollment will not be effected is because the district does not receive requests to transfer out Rather they are turning away about five students a day who wan to transfer into New Braunfels We have the opposite problem of people wanting to transfer into the district and being told said Brad berry Owners must be held accountable when their dogs go hunting sheep See Page 4A
