FLORESVILLE -- Voters in three of the Floresville Independent School District’s (ISD) seven single-member districts will be headed to the polls Nov. 5, in the wake of two votes by the district’s board of trustees at its July 16 meeting.

The terms of Ryan Bippert and John Raabe, who represent districts 2 and 6, respectively, end in November. In addition to those elections, the board also voted unanimously to hold a special election for District 7, after accepting Doug Shoemaker’s resignation. The Floresville businessman was appointed to the board in 2007 to serve an unexpired term, and was last re-elected in 2011.

Shoemaker’s resignation was one of the items discussed when the board met twice in closed session during the meeting that lasted slightly more than four hours. The board also:

•Conducted interviews with potential interim superintendent candidates.

•Considered and discussed potential interim superintendent candidates.

•Discussed personnel needs.

•Considered the acquisition and sale of real property.

While in open session, the board took no action related to real property and no one offered a motion related to an interim superintendent. The board did, however, vote to approve hires, resignations, and retirements that have occurred since its June meeting. See box (right).

Also with regard to staff, the board voted to approve an interlocal agreement with the Karnes/Wilson Juvenile Board for the employment of a social studies teacher for the Floresville Alternative Education Center. Floresville ISD will split the cost. Assistant Superintendent for Finance Mike McSwain said the district’s share would not exceed $32,500.

Other recommendations made by McSwain and subsequently approved by the board included:

•A five-year renewal of the district’s property insurance with Property Casualty Alliance of Texas, at a fixed annual cost of approximately $240,000 per year. The renewal also includes a $15 million increase in the policy’s maximum coverage, due in part to increased replacement costs and Floresville ISD’s reassuming control of its student transportation system.

•A five-year renewal of its workers compensation insurance with Workers Compensation Solutions, at a potential maximum cost of $280,000 per year. This cost -- which McSwain said accounts for approximately 1 percent of the district’s total budget -- varies, based on the claims submitted.

•Voted to engage Padgett Stratemann & Co. to perform Floresville ISD’s 2012-13 financial audit, at a cost not to exceed $30,000.

In other business, the board voted to amend the district’s mission statement to read, “At Floresville ISD, we strive to develop confident leaders and productive citizens with character and knowledge, in preparation for a prosperous life.”

The previous mission statement was, “The mission of the Floresville Independent School District is to develop academic leaders and citizens with character in preparation for the opportunities and challenges of tomorrow.”

The Floresville Independent School District board, at its July 16 meeting, voted to accept the following hires, resignations, and retirements:

•Floresville High School: Ashley Chandler, Amy Albert, Chelsey Lyssy, and John Hilsberg
