POTH -- Delving directly into the discussion of a school bond issue, Southwest Securities representative Victor Perez again addressed the Poth Independent School District’s (ISD) board of trustees Jan. 17 with an update on the district’s science complex building process.

Perez presented a report outlining options for economical building plans for the proposed structure.

Poth ISD faces a multimillion-dollar bond issue to fund the project and related items. Currently, the projects range from as low as $3 million for a “traditional” structure, to as high as $4.9 million for a higher-end, “nontraditional” complex, as presented by Perez, who suggested the inclusion of “flex space” to allow for increased usage, in addition to science labs.

“Can we build it and is it going to fit?” asked Darren Wiatrek, voicing concern about the limited space.

Discussions also included possible alterations to the structure’s orientation to allow for future expansion and connection with other buildings. Also discussed was the slope of the site for the proposed complex.

According to board President Wesley West, the district must decide on terms of issuance by March so a bond election can be included on the ballot for May elections. The board will continue to gather information prior to a decision.

In other business, the board members withdrew into executive session to discuss the replacement of a board member.

After reconvening, the trustees appointed Mike Luna to fill the vacancy left by the recent resignation of Anthony Cantu. Luna was not present; he will be sworn in during the next board meeting.

Also during the meeting:

•Superintendent Scott Caloss presented a report regarding curriculum and teaching improvement plans to be implemented in the coming years, designed to move away from traditional teaching methods toward more contemporary approaches, including “differentiated instruction” to help reach an increasingly diverse student base.

•Caloss advised an outside consulting company is performing an analysis of the current teaching schedules to determine any inefficiencies.


In attendance: Trustees Leroy Garza, Darren Wiatrek, Wesley West, Elizabeth Clancy-Hrna, and Wade Harris; Superintendent Scott Caloss.

Gee, I thought that the problem with today's school teaching methods was the departure from traditional tried and true teaching techniques. Expending money for an outside opinion on how to teach sounds a bit too much. The ... More ›

What a dumb idea they need a sports complex, I have not heard of huge crowds attending science fairs buying gas, beer, ice, eating at restaurants and renting hotel rooms. Gomez and Tejada need to help them get their priorities ... More ›
