After a short closed session, the Pleasanton ISD board unanimously agreed to convey the Leming school property to Atascosa County. This will be effective July 1 and is conditional on the fact that the buildings are not demolished and must be open for use by the public. Plans are to try to get them designated as historical buildings.
The board, which consists of Danny Brown, Blasa Chapa, Gerald Guerra, Clinton Henson, Ami Powell and President Frank Tudyk, Jr. (Jamie Downs was absent), approved the proposed list of community members to serve on the Long Range Planning Committee. The trustees feel it is important to educate the public on school financing so that plans can be made for the future, with clarity and understanding. Henson will head the committee and Tudyk will also represent the school board.
Superintendent Cynthia Clinesmith presented the summer calendar, which gives dates and information on Summer Camp, on when and where construction takes place and when and which campus will be closed for cleaning.
The STAAR testing results report shows that PISD is at or above state standards. The formal report will come out in October.
The board accepted the resignation of Gerald Guerra, who has been on the board for 10 years, effective with this meeting. He received a plaque of appreciation from Tudyk. After a short discussion, it was decided to appoint Edward Zamarripa to replace him as representative for District 2.
Brenda Rowinsky, who has been with the district many years but has served as Secretary for the past 10 years, is also leaving the district. She was given a beautiful eagle trophy in appreciation for her years of service.
Since there is no legislature this year, there are no changes required on the budget. Salaries will increase one percent, with teachers receiving step increases. Clinesmith said that there is a list for transfers to elementary from other schools in the county.
The final act of business was the board approval of the contractual employees as presented.
Meeting adjourned at 8:55 p.m.
