DOERR I (Continued from P. 1) district may receive all or part I of the $50,000 requested from j the federal government for re-i imbursement on construction of I the new High School building. I Dr. Sahm reported he had re-jceived a letter from the ofhce ¡of U.S. Senator Lyndon Johnson, promising the query the national Office of Education on ^ the status of New Braunfels ! District's request for funds, and I promising to report, "just as I soon as we have any informa-jtion." The request for funds was made under a provision of Public Law 815, which entitles I schools to an allowance of $770 j for each child of military personnel attending public school. I The local district is entitled to 161,000 for new school buildings under this law. Sahm said i Congress has appropriated 90 i per cent of the funds requested : by the Office of Education for j use under Public Law 815, and i indications are that the local district will get a substantial 1 portion of the funds requested. • I Included in the budget are ; funds to be used to set up a i scale of cost of living bonuses to be paid to teachers as a reward for continuous service in ' the local school system. The bonuses were recommended by a special committee headed by ; Irvin Boar-net. and are for the i coming year only. Boarnot explained that the bonuses do not ; apply to the 17 new teachers. ; hired by the system for the first i time this year, since they are I to be considered as a reward for ; continuous service. I The scale, as adopted by the board, provides for a 7 per cent salary increase for teachers being paid from $2,400 to $2.975 I a year; a 5 per cent increase for I teachers in the $2,976 to $3,575 I a year bracket; and a 3 per cent incease for those teachers and administrators making $3,576 and more a year. Boarnet said the committee felt that those teachers in the lowest salary range were the ones "feeling the pinch" of increased living costs more than any other, and that was the reason for the varied scale of bonuses. The bonuses will be paid in 12 monthly installments, ' and if a teacher resigns for any I reason, remaining bonus pay-I n\ents will be forfeited. I Maintenance employees, jan-! itors, cooks, etc., afe not included in the bonus scale, since their cases are being or already ; have been considered separaie- ; ly, Boarnet said. • ; Boarnet, in his capacity as I chairman of the board's educa-: tion Comnntte, recommended ; that the board should seriously consider employment of a V) manager for the New Braunfels Independent School District. He pointed out that the board had just adopted the biggest budget in its history, the school system includes more students and more buildings than ever For Justice of the Peace Precinct 1, Place No. 2 ROBERT BOSEIF YOU NEED .-„.'y.^t......—^»..^ìm SEE KNEUPER BROS. Music Co. 14« N. Gasten — rhone S» before, and there are niore teachers in the system, among them 17 new teachers who will need close superv^ion during their first year of teaching here. "I believe that we should consider employing a man trained in business and ' engineering to relieve Dr. Sahm of the unusually heavy burden being placed on him in administering the greatly enlarged school system," Boarnet said. He pointed out that the multiple duties now being assumed by Dr. Sahm, who has only a secretary to help him in his office, restrict the amount of superyision of teachers necessary, especially with the great number of new teachers in the system, many of whom are teaching for the first time this year. The board agreed that the proposal should receive serious thought. Further discussion and ^ possible action on the suggestion is planned for later meetings. • The board also approved the employment of Mrs. Betty Redmond Gault as a home ei^bn-omics teacher at Junior High School, to replace Bernice Brand, who is going to be mar-j ried and will leave the city, and the employment of Mrs. Julia M. Nixon, as a .second grade teacher at t^jamar School. A request for release from a contract signed recently by Mrs. Lena Talley, as physical education teacher at Senior High School, so that .she might teach in San Marcos, was denied by the board. Mrs. Jimi-^ lyn Walden, Carl Schurz teacher, was released from her contract, since her husband, who is stationed at Randolph Air Force Base, is being transferred. Board Member Leslie Ehlers protested the September 2 date for opening of school here as presented on the school calendar submitted by Dr. Sahm, as being too early because of the excessive heat during the early part of September. Dr. Sahm pointed out that the state requires that 175 school days be held each year, and that only by keeping .school open into June could the Required days beheld. Boarnet agreed with Ehlers that the first two weeks in September "are unbearably hot," and that it would be better to keep children in school late in May or early in June than to require attend-a^co ill school in early September. The board voted U) accept the calendar as submitted, but asked Sahm to investigate the pixssibility of postponing the school o{>ening date next year until the middle of September.
