New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 24, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas CISD HeraldZeltung g Sunday August 24 1997O5A From Page 1A The committee found growth was the most rapid in the Bulverde area with the Canyon Lake area coming in second While other parts of the district are considered slower growing sections they are experiencing a rate of about 5 to 10 percent growth each year I think were just seeing the tip of theiceberg said Charles Burt who served as chairman of a subcommittee and helped prepare the final committee report When you look at all the land out there it could be really The district opened three new intermediate schools last year and all three opened at near capacity Burt said that is why the committee concentrated on putting together a recommendation that would take the district to the end of the 20022003 school year What were trying to do is stop playing he said The committee presented its final report to the board last month Recommendations include realignment of campuses major additions and renovations at existing campuses and construction of three new schools THe plan also calls for a return to elementary middle school and high school campuses eliminating the intermediate school configuration It calls for school size to be set at for high schools and 800 for the lower grade level campuses The price tag for the entire plan is about million Burt said although the cost of the package was high the committee did not want to make cuts for two basic reasons First previous packages were underestimated and the committee wanted to make sure the board had a true representation of the cost Burt explained The second reason according to Burt was board members needed a clear picture of everything that was needed and wanted before cuts began COMAL ISO STUDENT ENROLLMENT PROJECTIONS Campus Elementary Intermediate Middle School High School TOTAL Source Comal ISO What If a bond election fails Superintendent Jerry Major sMid if a bond election is not successful the district would have to look at its options The longrange planning committee report included these alternatives yearround school split shift schools bussing leasing space increased class sizes and portable buildings We felt it was important to show the board the whole thing and let trustees have a better idea when they started said Burt We did not cut back the total package at That to me was outside the realm and scope of what we were supposed to Linda Bertelsen who also headed up a subcommittee said committee members did not take into account the fact that the proposal was beyond the means of the districts budget She said she and her husband John felt like the committee didnt even look at the cost implications of their requests and made the report as expensive and as inclusive as possible It was a wish she said They didnt want to take School Lunch Menus NEW BRAUNFELS INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT Lamar Primary Lone Star Primary Memorial Primary and Memorial

didnt make any cuts He said it helped to know what the teachers and administrators requested to make campuses and jobs better The committee did an absolutely excellent job and did exactly what we asked it to he said The board already has begun massaging the numbers and has created a new committee to study two variations to the original recommendation In both scenarios only top priority renovations are considered The difference between the two is that one calls for two new elementary schools while the other calls for one new elementary and the expansion of the Mountain Valley intermediate and elementary schools The cost for the two packages would be between million and million How to pay the bill Once the board decides what it wants to do the next step will be funding The CISD board is in the process of forming its budget for the 19971998 school year and has to make approximately million in cuts As a result Major said any major expansion or construction project would have to be funded with a bond issue To come up with the kind of money were talking about out of the operating budget would be difficult if not he said Burt said although he was not big on school taxes are well spent on childrens education He said funding plans from legislators and cuts in state aid have made it difficult for the district to address growth without a bond issue Were a rich district but we cant afford the things other districts have I dont said Burt I dont feel like my kid should do without just because some politician cant make it Voters approved a million bond issue in 1994 In 1995 the district went back to the taxpayers and asked for another million A recount was called and the final results showed the bond package narrowly passed by eight votes Krueger said the second election close because a large bond issue had been approved the previous year support for the second package just wasnt very strong He said he does not see the eightvote margin as an indication of dissent among voters Burt said there probably would be more support for a bond package to support this plan because it was a longterm plan that would not require another bond election for at least five years I think if you lay out a good plan and tell them its needed theyll back he said Bertelsen said the 1995 election should serve as a warning that voters did not support building new schools She said a bond election calling for more new campuses could be difficult to pass because voters wanted to see that the district was efficiently using its resources There are a lot of people out there who are tired of bond elections and tax she said Major said if a bond election was not successful the district would have to regroup and look at its options The LRPC report included alternatives such as yearround school split shift schools bussing leasing space increased class sizes and additional portable buildings Recently Moved Getting Married New Baby Give us a call American Legion Post 179
