By DEBBIE DELOACH Staff writ ar Big decisions for a proposed May ll bood issue election hover over Coma] ISO, bot not for long.
At a workshop Monday night at Frasier Elemenary, CISC Supt. Bill Brown saki trustees should decide by Monday whether to include a new middle school or a new high school in the bond package. Once that decision has been madet Brown said, “Well be ready to rod, and by the 25th, we’d know what it's going to cost us.’*
CISD began holding bond issue workshops at various campuses on Feb. IS. Brown has also been gathering names from campus principals to serve on a blue-nbbon bond issue steering <w*imt*tt*w
rooms to Smttheon Valley, and we will have to eventually. Bn! we have to watch our water problems and parking lot problems.”
Trustees have aim talked abow! a new middle school proposal, in sn effort to consolidating the relating Mountain Valley and Bulverde Middle schools. Brown said many CBD patrons have spoken out in favor of this proposal, too.
“A lot said take the junior highs, pot them together and we can have a better academic program,” Brown said, adding that CBD could no longer afford the concept of neighborhood schools.
At the workshop Monday night. Brown aim indicated he would Bkt to eventually rid CBD of all its portable buildings.
that will begin work after the major decisions are “You did the best you could with who! you had. made. Now it’s time Ie de something different Every
Brown said the consensus at the workshops rn far has been to turn Smithson Valley High School into a junior high, and build a new high school in the same vicinity
'Right now, SVHS has more lode than Canyon High School.” Brown said. “We could add more
school I've looked at bm problems. Bot the problem with portable buildings is if left too long, they become permanent,” Brown said.
The superintendent even proposed borrow big money to solve the overcrowded conditione et Bulverde Elementary, where there are at least six
portable buildings already.
“Today, right now, we need 44 classrooms there, but I don’t want to stick any more money in portable buildings. So I say we go to the bunk, borrow the money, put the shell up and sub-out the inside," Brown said, adding the work could be done before school started next September that way.
According to Brown’s timetable, trustees would have to decide by April • if they want to call a bond election for May ll. The election date is important, Brown said, because the city could abo decide to hold a bond election in late May or early June.
Brown said renovations at Comal Elementary, Frazier and Goodwin Primary would aim need to be included in the bond package.
The next CBD bond workshop will be Monday at Canyon Middle School, beginning at 7:30 pun., followed by a March 25 workshop at Comal Elementary. Brown said there would be no workshop connected to the board’s next regular meeting on March IO at Frazier Elementary

One issue brought up Monday was a person’s right to put a sign on bb property.
“The thing that concerns me b the fact that we want to regubte too many things,’’ saki councilmember OJI. Strateraann Jr. “I have a right to put up a sign if I so desire.’

The majority of the group agreed that if they must be allowed, portable signs should be used on a temporary bash — such as when a business first opens.
