BY RAUL CHAVARRIA

The most recent Legislative Session was not friendly to schools in the State of Texas. A long overdue replacement or overhaul of the School State Funding Formula by our Legislature did not take place. From 2008 to 2017 the state has lowered their percentage of contribution to schools, yet increased regulation over the schools.

Superintendent begins series about $5 million school bond election

BY RAUL CHAVARRIA

Recently I was a guest at the Ozona Woman’s Forum Meeting to speak on facts about the upcoming Bond Election.

The following are questions that were asked at that meeting, and also questions that I have been asked by others in regards to the $5 million bond proposal.

The proposed bond will be used in three areas, transportation, technology and maintenance. We will use bond funds in these areas to save money normally spent out of the regular budget, and address the shortfall brought on by the repeal of ASATR (Additional State Aid for Tax Reduction) state funding.

School board discusses cafeteria food complaints

BY MELISSA PERNER

Improving the food in the school cafeterias was discussed at last week’s regular board meeting.

At the Sept. 20 meeting, the board and Food Services Manager Ludy Vargas addressed complaints and concerns that have been made, many on social media, since school started.

No parents, or local citizens, who made the complaints attended the meeting. All school board meetings are open to the public. Food Services Manager Ludy Vargas also said no one has come to her with any complaints.

“This has been a hot topic lately. We have to stay within the federal guidelines. We’re meeting those guidelines, but there is food that kids don’t want,” said Superintendent Raul Chavarria.

The district’s food service program is regulated and funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Texas Department of Agriculture.
