Eagle Ford: Poth trustees plan for future needs
POTH -- The highlight of the Poth Independent School District’s March 18 board meeting was, by far, the discussion of a 10-year facilities plan. Aiming to keep an eye on the future, the plan would be developed to allow the board to make constant progress toward the overall improvement of the three district campuses.
Daniel Perez, representing the SHW Group architecture firm, proposed that an advisory committee be formed to develop the plan. The committee, composed of 30 to 40 members of the community, faculty, and students, would assemble for six to eight meetings over an estimated three-month period.
SHW has offered to facilitate the meetings by providing information, such as campus and enrollment studies, for a fee of $15,000. These resources would allow the committee members to better comprehend the needs and limits of the district.
The board expressed a desire to be finished with the development process by the end of the school year or shortly after, so that policies can be put into place for the following year.
In other business, the trustees approved measures for the upcoming bond election, and approved Mary Raabe as the early voting clerk and Nelda Hoefelmeyer as the election judge.
Early voting will take place Wednesday, April 24, through Tuesday, May 7. Election Day is Saturday, May 11.
Poth ISD board meeting, March 18. In attendance: Trustees Mike Luna, Leroy Garza, Darren Wiatrek, Bob Kilgore, Wesley West, Elizabeth Clancy-Hrna, and Wade Harris; Superintendent Scott Caloss.
