Revised summer schedule goes into effect Monday
In an effort to save energy costs, a revised summer work schedule will be initiated at all Comal ISD offices and campuses.
A four-day, 40-hour work week will be in effect June 3 through Aug. 9. The new schedule was approved by the district's trustees at a special meeting on May 13.
Each principal or department head will be responsible for ensuring that
their employees comply with the 40-hour week. The Central Administration Office in New Braunfels will be open from 7:15 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
District officials estimate that the innovative schedule change will save the district at least $25,000 this summer in energy costs. All air conditioning and lights will be turned off from Thursday afternoon to Monday morn
ing at all district offices and campuses. Summer school on CISD campuses will be held on Mondays through Thursdays this year.
Another cost-cutting change adopted by the district’s administration will be moving all frozen and refrigerated foods to a central location for the summer months, while electricity will be shut off at all the other school kitchens.
The district has also adopted a “black-out” policy on all campuses from June 3 through Aug. 8, when all security lights will be turned off. Comal County Sheriffs Office representatives have indicated that it will actually be easier to patrol the schools under these conditions.
CISD employees will return to their traditional schedules on Aug. 12.
