When she started working for the New Braunfels Independent School District 10 years ago, she knew that other school districts in the area were not just paying teachers more - they were paying a lot more. But WHAT WOULD TEACHER RASSES COST NBISD? City ISD and about $7,000 less than a teacher with 10 years experience at Lackland ISD in San Antonio. The substantial discrepancy in pay is an issue that has resonated across the district for some time, leaving many to conclude one thing: Pay scales for teachers in the NBISD need to become r $1,000 raise would cost the district about $450,000 $1,500 raise would cost the district about $680,000 ,59 $2,000 raise would cost ^Uhe district about $900,0( 4 tie surround i n g ,; commiinity, v the students � i and the district's reputa- �'�' �' tion solidified Estes' decision to work for the NBISD. For now, those components are enough to keep the 38-year-old communication and student leadership teacher at New Braunfels High School - even though she continues to make substantially less than her peers in neighboring school districts. On average, Estes makes about $6,000 less than a teacher with the same tenure at the Shertz-Cibolo-Universal ~(H H / ii: 'hk< Hit,) A Y fits "'v^KTnrDl. DAVID INGRAM/Heraid-Zeitung Comal County Assistant Civil Coordinator Angela Umphrey processes a passport application at the courthouse Friday afternoon. Four month wait is forecast for applications By Mark Koopmans The Herald-Zeitung Passport requests for U.S. citizens visiting Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean have been lifted until Sept. 3. But the Comal County District Clerk's office in New Braunfels warned people about the backlog of passport applications. The District Clerk's office, which processes passport applications at its location on the third floor of the Comal County Courthouse Annex, is one of only two locations in the county where passports applications are handled - New Braunfels Post Office is the other. "We've been overwhelmed since the South America, the Caribbean and new rules were implemented," District Clerk Kathy Faulkner said Friday. "That's why I decided to change our application times to Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. (instead of 4:30 p.m.) Our staff needed the extra time to get their work done." While travel to most international destinations already required a passport, the current backlog appears to stem from a January 2007 decision by the U.S. Departments of State and Homeland Security. The new rule meant anyone - including U.S. citizens - traveling by air between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Central and Bermuda were required to present a valid passport. The temporary lifting of the restrictions is confined to those who have applied for - but have not received - their passports. All other rules still apply, according to information on the U.S. Department of State's Web site. In 2006, the county processed a total of about 1,100 and 1,200 applications. "I just ran a report and we've already passed 1,200 (applications this year)," Faulkner said. "That's the same as last year in only six months." See PASSPORT, Page 11A I I J * * - | n' 0856825000028 ;
