NBISD eyes prospects for new elementary
By CRAIG HAMMETT
Much of the focus on schools in the county has centered on the Comal Independent School District, where growth in student population has forced the district to consider a multi-million dollar bond issue for new schools.
The New Braunfels Independent School District is experiencing growth as well, just not at the same pace as the CISD
Supen mender* Charles Bradberry said the district is looking at future possibilities for bonds to build a new elementary near the Memorial schools area and additions to the high school. He said the bond would cover a three-year plan.
“It would be a phascd-in process,” he said "The nigh school is the immediate need.”
The high school topped die 1,600 mark this year because of the largest freshman class in history, 515 students. Bradberry said the seventh and eighth-grade groups should only increase that total.
“We’ve stopped transfers, that reduced about 40 students and we’ve taken a strong stand on people who don't reside
in the district."
A study by Hamer and Associates of Austin said the New Braunfels area Is not experiencing the same level residential development over toe last tour years as it didin the mid-1980’s The birth rate has also leveled off after a large increase in the mid and late 1980s Bradberry said the dtotrict has experienced a steady growth akhough not on the level of the CISD. Younger children town those 1980s boom years are now moving through the district, mostly into the higher grades.
"When I came here in 1983 we had 3,700 students. We now have around 5,700," he said.
Mid-range student projections put the NBISD at 6,032 by the year 2002. High-range projections sit at 6,997 by that same year.
“He (representative of Hamer and Associates) suggested slightly above the mid-level, about four percent,” said Bradberry.
Bradberry said the district still has room for more residential development, especially in the southern portions and possibly stretching into Guadalupe County. *

Several business people in the county, especially in the Canyon Lake area, are concerned that an editorial layout in an area newspaper may damage their business.
In an editorial by the “HiU Country Trader," several businesses were portrayed ss sponsoring art article by CISD Board Member Douglas Kirk regarding the bond election.
Several of the owners said they
would not take a public position on the election either way and had no knowledge of the advertisements or the article.
“We reserve our right to make a choice at the polls," said Glenn Wenzel of New Braunfels Pressure Washing. *
