FLORESVILLE -- For the first time in its history, the Floresville Independent School District’s (ISD) tax roll has surpassed $1 billion. This was part of a presentation from the district’s Assistant Superintendent for Finance Mike McSwain at the Dec. 17 meeting of the Floresville ISD board of trustees.
McSwain said the tax roll, which increased 8.5 percent over the previous school year, totals $1,085,638,240. His report also included these highlights:
•The district’s enrollment, as of the report’s completion, stood at 3,816 students, decreasing for a second consecutive year. In the 2012-13 school year, the district had 3,823 students, which was 11 students less than the previous year.
•The percentage of students benefiting from free and reduced-price lunches increased 3 percent to 56.34 percent for the 2013-14 school year.
In other business, the board heard the district’s 2012-13 financial audit report, which revealed no significant deficiencies. The board voted unanimously to approve the audit report.
The board also met in closed session, during which it discussed items related to personnel. When it reconvened, the board approved the resignations of para-professional Michelle Milton and Brittney Ruiz-Esparza, both of the Floresville Middle School.
The following were approved for hire:
•Dawn Norment, teacher, Floresville Middle School
•Heather Hamilton, teacher, Floresville High School
•Argentina Oviedo, custodian
•Cecily Talley, para-professional, Floresville Middle School
•Katie Burke, instructional aide, Floresville High School.
Prior to entering closed session, however, the board reorganized, selecting Rachel Peña as its president. Neysa Choate will serve as vice president, while Ryan Bippert and William Meuth will serve as secretary and treasurer, respectively.
