Cash donations will be taken as long as they come in and will be placed in an account at Texas Commerce Bank An informal Tuesday evening meet ing of three New Braunfels Indepen dent School District trustees and two members of a high school committee on accelerated block scheduling has alarmed school administrators who A meeting between trustees and teachers has caused the interim principal at New Braunfels High School to question how long she want to remain in the position See story on 3A The New Braunfels Independent School Districts Board of Trustees has two meetings this week See story on 3A say it marks the continued erosion of trust Trustee Steve Weaver confirmed that he invited the boards president Jaime Padilla and vice president Dr Carlos Campos to the meeting at the Guadalupe Cattle Co Weaver said the meetings purpose was to receive an update on the pro posed block scheduling plan that a consensus building committee will present at a board meeting this week The district formed the committee in April to look at the high school sched ule after parents and teachers voiced concerns about it The main concerns deal with the lack of math and English on a daily basis and impact of extracurricular activities which can account for a fourth of a students day New Braunfels High School teacher Joannie Garza and parent Rae Ann Roeder both committee members dis cussed the proposal to the scheduling plan and answered trustees questions for 30 to 45 minutes Weaver said Weaver said the meeting was a gath ering of friends including parents and at least one teacher who helped in his campaign for blockscheduling reform Im disappointed that Ive been accused of doing something Weaver said Its unfortunate that theyre trying to make a big issue about this I as a board member am trying to make an informed decision A good board member better understand what hes voting Karen Simpson the interim principal at New Braunfels High School and head of the committee said the meet ing thwarts her efforts to provide sta bility to the high school after its top two administrators asked for reassign ment following similar events earlier in Its unfortunate that theyre trying to make a big issue about this I as a board mem ber am trying to make an informed decision A good board member bet ter understand what hes voting Steve Weaver trustee the school year I will be not only stunned but sad dened if its true that a committee member met with three board mem bers on the proposed Simpson said 1 had asked the committee that we work together as a committee and to please not divulge information Its not that we have any information to hide but we dont want the scheduling to become After the reassignment of the two administrators Weaversaid he tried to attend the committees meeting to learn more about block scheduling Weaver said outgoing Superinten dent Charles Bradberry asked him to leave prompting him to contact his friends on the committee Roeder and Garza Since then Weaver said he has not been able to get committee reports Bradberry and Simpson said the meetings were set up to be closed to allow members to speak freely on the hotly debated topic Weaver said Tuesdays meeting actually ended with compliments on Simpsons performance Morale is as high as its ever he said It was one of the most positive meetings Ive been Campos office reported Friday that he will be out of town until Monday Padilla said he attended the meeting in at Weavers invitation which seemed to be an opportunity to learn more about block scheduling The discussion was strictly to get information as to what to expect as far as the block Padilla said I was invited I went and lis tened and then Bradberry said the meeting is dis tressing because the board promised Simpson that they would not meet with teachers without consulting her first Countys residents have been left out of loop in consolidation plans See Opinion 44
