The New Braunfels Indepcrwlcnt School District Board of Trustees elected Jean Ward and Dick Robinette as members of the Comal County Education District (CED) at its meeting last night
"I’d like to nominate the two retired members of our board as this may be a very time-consuming process,” Trustee Alan Hermes said.
Trustee Margie Rabom seconded the nomination and the vote was unanimous. Trustee Bob Clarke was not at the meeting.
Assistant Superintendent Lonnie Curtis immediately gave the two trustees information packets so they could start preparing for the first CED meeting scheduled for June 25.
The CED board will consist of Ward and Robinette from NBISD along with Lee Ikcls and Leroy Good-son from the Comal Independent School District Board.
The CED was set up by the legislature’s school finance plan to levy property taxes on a countywide basis to supplement the school district revenues.

lack of a majority vote on a 3-3 vote. Dick Robinette, Alan Hermes, and Bob Self voted in favor of the appointment while Jean Ward, Margie Rabom, and Nayo Zamora voted against.
Board Secretary Jean Ward said that the appointment of Schlatter would go against the district’s longstanding policy of promoting the assistant when an opening came up

There was also a question of
whether the item was properly posted on the agenda Attorney Michael Butts asked if it was posted and went up to board dais to see that it was listed on the board members’ agenda Superintendent Charles Bradberry explained that the item was inadvertently left off the original agenda that was compiled by a person that didn’t normally do it and that a revised version was sent to trustees and the mcd<-a. There was confusion as some people in the audience had the original rather than the revised agenda.
Peter Garza .md Kenneth McGuire were appointed as assistant principals
at New Braunfels Middle School on a 4-0 vote with Rabom and W iri abstaining.
Carleton Donop, district tax collector said that the city tax bills mould probably be sent out by Friday nu that the school district tax bills would have to wait until the new rates could be determined based on certified values and a court decision on the constitutionality of the new CED finance plan
