exceed this limit three percent in it may do so at any regular board Neuse added that the tax rate was a posted agenda item which was published 72 hours prior to the meeting to comply with the Open

Waldrip cited for the called for a change in the textbook selection process so that opportunity for input by teachers and administrators to the State Textbook Committee is maximized and textbooks

parental con ference for reporting achievement tests scores was approved on a split vote last night by Comal Independent School District A vote to table the matter was defeated on a split vote after further an ad ditional parental conference with teachers for the purpose of reporting achievement test scores was approved over the no votes of trustees Leroy Raymond Soechting and Ralph Voting for the proposal were Kenneth Carey Judy Erwin Lehmann and Milton Norris was not The grading and reporting policy for the district was approved by the board a month ago but at the request of McWilliams the matter was back on the agenda for the meeting at Bulverde Middle McWilliams explained that the request to either postpone the last conference until mid May or schedule another conference is to give parents the time to consider achievement test scores before the beginning of the next school Saying that he could not understand why the board mandate to the administration for in cluding the test score reporting sessions this year was not McWilliams said the response to the offering of scores to parents at the end of last year was James Richardson responded that unless McWilliams has a different set of official minutes to the board such an official request was not The board did direct the administration to make test scores available to interested Richardson added that last year there was only a percent turnout of parents requesting the test Wunderlich asked one teacher from Goodwin Primary School if she favored abolishing the parental conferences since she said they take so much She responded that she felt the conferences are important but she should not have to spend time pressuring parents to attend the conferences and the later conference would be of little instructional value since there would only be two weeks left in the school The board president said that was all since in his six years of the first and last months of school are not used for effective instruction Most of the teachers in the audience took exception to that If I wasnt having effective instruction then my principal would fire said one Comal Elementary School Principal

Wednesday a Commissioners Court meeting scheduled for Thursday to resolve Al Herbrichs status as deputy constable would not accomplish a In a letter to County Judge Max Reimer repeated his assertion that the law clearly requires a written statement on the need for a deputy There cannot be a de facto deputy constable and a written request stating the necessity of an is an essential element of at taining the Reimer If no such statement was filed when Herbrich was appointed as a reserve deputy in 1977 or deputy in then Herbrich was not legally he and there was nothing the county could do about it except ask for a new opinion from the attorney Some commissioners appeared ready to ap prove Herbrichs appointment if the prescribed legal paperwork requesting a deputy was filed and Herbrichs credentials as a qualified candidate for the job were Herbrich wanted to clarify his status Reimers letter suggested the court ask for a new opinion to stop the incessant wrangling over this relatively trivial but that was a policy decision and he wasnt recommending it one way or he The court had set up the Thursday session to allow arguments from two law enforcement associations supporting Herbrich and Constable 2 Kermit Vetter to be Vetter gave Reimer the names of representatives from these but Reimer said he had not contacted Im not saying it would be a waste of time they may personally convince Theres a lot of things about the law I dont agree But the law isnt up in the Its based on old decisions and old attorney generals I cant give the commissioners a different Reimer Attorneys from the associations the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Education and the Reserve Law Officers Association of America could file a brief with the attorney general if the county decides to ask for a new Reimer If the commissioners arent satisfied with the old asking for a new one is an alter native course they could Its not in conceivable the opinion could
