POTH -- The Poth Inde-pendent School District (ISD) board of trustees has approved a proposed property-tax rate of $1.1374 per $100 of appraised value for the coming fiscal year. This includes $1.04 for maintenance and operations and 9.74 cents for debt service.

The school board approved the matter during a lengthy regular meeting Aug. 12. This is an increase of 6 cents over the current rate of $1.0741 per $100 of appraised value; this included $1.0330 for maintenance and operations and 4.08 cents for debt service.

The average taxable value of a home in the district is $94,801; this will mean an average tax bill of $1,078.27 for such a home. Last year’s average taxable value was $93,162, with a tax bill of $1,000.65.

The highest rate the district can adopt before requiring voter approval is $1.1374, the rate proposed by the trustees. A rollback election would be triggered, should the trustees approve a rate exceeding this.

The district will hold a public hearing on the proposed rate Friday, Aug. 30, at 6 p.m.

Also addressed during the meeting was a vacancy on the board caused by the resignation of Michael Luna. Candidates Anthony Cantu, Lance Malcher, and Melissa Shannon were interviewed during executive session, but no action was taken when the trustees reconvened.

Representatives of Southwest Securities presented an update to the board and Superintendent Scott Caloss on the sale of school building bonds for science and Life Skills additions to the high school campus. The board authorized the sale.

Also during the meeting, the board:

•Approved the purchase of a 12-passenger van and a car to replace existing district vehicles.

•Approved the 2013-14 district illness policy.

•Approved an interlocal agreement with Karnes City ISD for transportation of Poth students to the Floresville Alternative Education Center.

•Tabled endorsement of director candidates for the Region 20 position on the Texas Association of School Boards.

•Tabled potential pay increases until the tax rate is set.

•Approved increases for substitute teachers’ pay.

•Approved a change to the student handbook regarding electronic device use by students to be campus-specific. The Student Acceptable Use Agreement follows the handbook changes regarding student use of their own devices in classrooms, and more clearly defines what may and may not be done while using them in school.

Trustees also recognized Poth High School F.C.C.L.A. (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) member Daniel Soto, who earned a gold medal at the 2013 National Leadership Conference held in Nashville, Tenn., in early July.

In attendance: Superintendent Scott Caloss, board President Wesley West, and trustees Robert Kilgore, Elizabeth Clancy-Hrna, Wade Harris, Leroy Garza, and Darren Wiatrek.
