STOCKDALE -- The Stockdale Independent School District (ISD) is joining school districts in Karnes City, Poth, and Nixon and Smiley in forming an education foundation.

According to Stockdale ISD Superintendent Paul Darilek after the Aug. 12 meeting, the board of trustees heard a presentation from Jennifer Dillingham, who currently serves on the Karnes City ISD Education Foundation. The board approved establishing a foundation in Stockdale.

The mission of such 501(c)3 foundations is to “partner with the community to generate and distribute resources to enrich teaching, inspire learning, and maximize innovation opportunities for all students.”

Darilek said the foundation is in its early stages and its board will decide what direction to go, such as awarding grants to teachers for educational purposes. He said donations are tax-deductible.

Also during the meeting, the trustees approved an interlocal agreement between the Floresville ISD and the Stockdale ISD for transportation services. This follows Floresville ISD’s decision not to contract with Student Transportation Specialists. The Floresville, Karnes City, and Stockdale school districts will work as a co-operative, with Floresville ISD serving as fiscal agent to manage the project. Darilek said he foresees no changes for students.

The trustees also addressed two construction projects.

The first is the construction of an 80-foot-by-500-foot multi-purpose building on the elementary school campus. Darilek said the building will provide protection from the weather for students participating in physical education activities. The district is advertising for bids; no estimated costs were provided.

The other project -- upgrades to the district track -- has been delayed, as no bids were received for the relocation of the stadium bleachers. Darilek said it is the goal of the district to have it in use by mid- to late February.

In other action, the board:

•Heard that the district and all its campuses “met standards” on the new state accountability report.

•Approved to continue with Walsh Anderson as the school’s legal representative.

•Approved a surplus action sale Saturday, Sept. 14, at 10 a.m. for surplus equipment and items.

•Approved a resolution designating U.S. 87 and S.H. 123 as “hazardous roads,” to aid the district when preparing bus routes.

•Approved the 2013-14 high school athletic policy, with no changes.

Darilek said a public hearing will be held Monday, Aug. 26, at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the proposed tax rate of $1.34 per $100 assessed property value. The rate is the same as last year.
