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.

Floresville Independent School District board of trustees meeting Dec. 17. In attendance: Board members Steven Ibrom, Nancy Jurgatis, Ryan Bippert, Neysa Choate, Rachel Peña, and Kenneth Leonhardt; Interim Superintendent Sherri Bays, Superintendent’s Secretary Kim Cathey, Director of Assessment and Special Programs Jamie Payne, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Clay Rosenbaum, Assistant Superintendent for Finance Mike McSwain, Director of Maintenance Charles Bump, Personnel Director Jacquelyn Baker, Floresville Alternative Education Center Principal Bud Box, Floresville High School Principal Sandra Galinzoga, Floresville Middle School Principal Sara Mann, Floresville North Elementary School Principal Mike Schroller, and Floresville South Elementary School Principal Shelley Keck.

Perhaps another case of what happens when the electorate is apathetic?

Chris, that is the gross total of taxable value. FISD 2013 tax rate is $1.49/$100 value. Divide the $1 Billion amount by 100, then times that number by $1.49.... That will give you the correct amount that then gets divided ... More ›

So we have a decrease in enrollment and the price goes up. Just doesn't seem right. Would love to see the budget plan that was used to put this together.

$1,085,638,240 divided by 3,816 students is $284,496 per student... How about the district just pay me the money for my kids and I will quit my job and home school them...

That seems like an awful lot of money for that small number of kids. I wonder if the teachers will finally see a worthwhile raise?
