CS School Board Starts Looking At New BuildingsFeatured Stories, News Wednesday, October 17th, 2012
On the heels of the College Station school district completing nearly all projects from a 2009 bond issue, discussion begins of three new buildings.
Superintendent Eddie Coulson says an update was given at this week’s school board meeting, proposing a third middle school, a third intermediate, and a ninth elementary.
School board action included extending the superintendent’s contract another year, through June 2015. Coulson was given a pay raise of one and a half percent, the same percentage given earlier this year to CSISD employees.
Additional information from Monday’s school board meeting is courtesy of CSISD:
CSISD Long-Range Planning: Dr. Clark Ealy, Deputy Superintendent for Administrative Services, presented information regarding CSISD enrollment and school facility projections. CSISD’s current enrollment is 11,029 students and has annually grown at a rate of approximately three percent. With CSISD’s eight elementary schools at a combined 93 percent capacity, it is projected a ninth elementary school could be needed as soon as the 2015-16 school year. Additionally, based on these projections, three additional campuses could be needed by the end of the decade: a third intermediate a third middle school and a 10th elementary. This topic will be discussed further in future workshops and meetings.
Superintendent Contract: After meeting in executive session to discuss the contract of Superintendent Dr. Eddie Coulson, the board reconvened in open session and unanimously approved a one-year contract extension and a 1.5% pay raise. With the extension, Coulson’s contract will expire on June 30, 2015, and his annual salary will be adjusted to $184,527. All other CSISD employees received a 1.5% pay increase in May.
