Auto mechanics elective coming to Floresville ISD
FLORESVILLE -- Teens who like spending their free time under the hood or rolling on a creeper will be pleased with the new automobile mechanics elective program approved April 17 by the Floresville Independent School District board of trustees.
Superintendent’s Secretary Kim Cathey said after the meeting that Floresville High School sophomores through seniors are eligible to participate in the three-year program, which could end with students obtaining Automotive Service Excellence certifications. First-year students will take “Principles of Automotive Technology,” while “Automotive Technology” will be taught in the second year. The third- year class, “Advanced Automotive Technology,” includes job shadowing and an internship in the second semester, Cathey said.
Also during the meeting, the board voted to approve a 5-cent increase in school lunch prices ahead of the 2012-13 school year. Cathey said the increase is due to recent changes to U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines regarding paid-lunch equity calculations.
The board also voted to renew the district’s annual retainer agreement with the law firm of Walsh, Anderson, Gallegos, Green & Treviño, P.C., which will cost the district $1,000.
During the meeting, the board took the following personnel actions:
•Voted to approve the resignations of Raymond Robinson, Emily Gonzales, Jennifer Poppe, and Maria Del Carmen De Anda.
•Voted to approve the retirement of Becky Gaves.
•Voted to approve the hire of Zachariah Griffin, Christina Vackar, Ashley Angle, Lynn Baker, and Francisco Soriano.
