Of course. They falsify the street address in their registration, but they will be honest with you about the genuineness of the shoes that they will sell to you for less than the stores, even though their shipping expense (if they send them at all) would be higher.

It doesn't matter that much whether you get genuine shoes for this purchase (you won't). What matters more is how many more charges are going to come in if you let them have your credit card number.

It's sad to see how parents of Cibolo have tried to degrade the Schertz area. I think if they want to keep their kids doubled up in a classroom getting less of an education because they don't want to go to another school because it is not as "good" we should leave them there. This will only be better for my children that will benefit from the lower classroom numbers while the "Steele" kids cram into a room because of their parents have "money" and will get their lawyers! What a joke!
I think parents are pissed that their kids will have to change schools mid stream because of piss poor management by SCUCISD, and the Cibolo parents might be particularly upset because its only Cibolo children getting screwed over. I think it is reasonable to be pissed. If Schertz kid were not going to grauate with their classes you'd be pissed too.

We have has trailers parked at Steele forever. Grandfathering 100 kids while their plan is implemented is not alot to ask for.

Id get a lawyer if it were my kid. I bet anything the district will go to court- you dont fck with peoples kids. A couple of pissed off parents can kick their butts.

whether it is a student that lives in Cibolo or Schertz, we still have the same school district SCUCISD. Stop the whining about all that, we are suppose to back each other up as the Clemens students did when Steele went to State and won.

We're the same school district but nobody in schertz has to change schools. Acknowledge that this plan has an adverse impact on students in Steele.

Seems obvious that Cibolo has drawn the short straw.

Numerous studies have shown there to be a detrimental impact in switching High Schools. The US Dept of Education has written papers on it. So why is SCUCISD doing it so whimsically, without considering the impact on the currently enrolled HS Students.

A quote from the article:
"While intuitively one would think that older students would be able to more easily deal with going to a new school, that is not the case at all. Younger children make an easier adjustment, while adolescents more often develop problems.
Among adolescents, students who switch schools are less likely to complete high school than students who stay in the same school.
Furthermore, their engagement in school also drops. That is, students who change high schools after beginning their high school career are less engaged; they miss more school, perform more poorly on tests, and complete less homework than students who remain at the same school.
It is not necessarily the switch from one school to another that causes teenagers such difficulty. Rather, it is the disruption in their social life that is more likely to bring about trauma and crisis for teens.
Because adolescents are engaged in finding their identity and finding a stable peer group, relocating to a new school interferes with these processes. Leaving their clique and splitting from friends creates problems as they try to find a new group of friends that fit with their fledgling self-image. And for many adolescents that is not an easy task to accomplish"

A) you havent addressed the piss poor planning that has us in this situation.
B) you havent addressed the fact that it is primarily Cibolo residents being impacted by poor SCUCISD decisions and planning.
Cibolo is footing the bill, we're paying the taxes, yet all of the facilities are in Schertz. Schertz realizes the economic gain from that, they have the employment and the local businesses profit from it.
Cibolo High School students are going to lose scholarships because the district cannot figure out a phase in plan.
Additionally, this rezoning is not in the master plan, the master plan explicitly instructs new buildings being built.
750 students ALL from Cibolo are going to be adversely impacted, none from Schertz.
Its greedy parents like you that piss me off. I have every right to be pissed off because the schertz school district is using my tax money to build facilities that serve Schertz while my Cibolo kid is going to be bussed to a foreign school and forfeit a well earned scholarship.
Heads need to roll at scucisd, or cibolo needs to go it alone.
You rail on football, but it is an important part of the high school experience in Texas- Cibolon has more then paid for top notch facilities, yet we have to play in that rundown sewer in Schertz.
Cibolo is paying for more then we are receiving out of the SCUCISD, and this is just one more indignity. Our Cibolo kids are going to be bussed like mississippi burning and they will have a worse high school experience then us parents have paid for.
The mayor and city council of Cibolo need to intervene here and demand the service we are paying for from SCUCISD.
Yur comments about building facilities next week are ignorant, the master plan calls for a contruction schedule that clearly is not being followed. The implementation of this rezoning without grandfathering high school students is unnecessary, kids will lose scholarships and forfeit college opportunities becsuse of a hatchet job (cibolo kids, not schertz kids)
This isnt an overcrowding issue, this is an issue of SCUCISD screwing Cibolo over through incompetance. Schertz kids are not going to be impacted at all.
The master plan called for immediate construction to begin, why have a master plan that is whimsical and unrealistic. This whole thing stinks to high heaven.
Hate to bust your bubble, but I paid my fair share of taxes (and still today) so they could build Steele HS.

LOL at all of you wrote:
Ok! Who cares if you have money. We all do, including me (who lives in Cibolo). I think the SCUCISD administration is trying to do the best for the kids at this time and in the immediate future. I don't think that keeping your kids at an overcrowded HS is a solution either.
Now about taxes....Do you seriously think that Cibolo families are the only ones that pay taxes to SCUCISD? There are almost 15,000 more people in Schertz than Cibolo. I would say that they foot the bill as well.
As for facilities:
Elementary Schools - There are 4 in Schertz, 2 in Cibolo and one in UC.
Intermediate Schools - There are 2 in Cibolo and 1 in Schertz.
Junior High Schools - There is 1 in Cibolo and 1 in Schertz.
High School - There is 1 in Cibolo and 1 in Schertz.
I would say that the facilities are pretty spread out.
Also, if you are rich and have money, then maybe you can help one of the poor unfortunate students that will lose a scholarship (sounds like bull shit to me).
Finally someone who is making sense. I've been in Schertz since 1995 when Cibolo was pretty much nothing. I paid my fair share of taxes that went to schools on the other side of FM 3009--and I didn't see many complaints on this website about that. It's sad to see this kind of animosity when the district is already facing massive school budget shortfalls and people are complaining about school rezoning. It just shows how self-centered/selfish people can be during a minor crisis.

Cibolo is being underserved by the SCUCISD. Why are we allowing our Cibolo students to be bussed to Schertz schools when we are the faster growing tax base.
According to their own whacky numbers Cibolo is 70% of the growth, so why is bussing those students to Schertz an apt solution?
This proposal is going to have an adverse impact on Cibolo students. The parents and elected officials from Cibolo need to act to stop the SCUCISD from treating our kids like second class citizens, when we are the tax base subsidizing the declining tax base from the aging neighborhoods in Schertz and UC.
Cibolo needs our own facilities. SCUCISD needs to serve our citizens way better then this.
You are very self-centered. People like don't have a clue about anything but what's under your roof. You don't think my taxes go up like yours when the county wants to add another useless facility?

Why did they build Steele to only hold 1500 students? What happened to the third high school and additional Jr High School outlined in the district master plan? Why did they build Corbett so far away?
State football champions and we have a borrowed stadium from Schertz.
Why does the SCUCISD appear to be reluctant to spend any money outside of Schertz when the growth is all in Cibolo?
Where are the Cibolo elected officials to protect and represent us?
750 of our cibolo kids are going to be disenfranchised because of SCUCISDs poor planning and Schertz bias.
This is unacceptable.
Who cares about football--except you. Guess you didn't read that the ISD is facing $10M+ budget shortfall. Corbett to far away? Give me a break. I'm sure that drive you make to Corbett is very stressful. You should be worried about to new taxes that everyone of us will see this October--because of those bonds that voters approved last year. Kids disenfranchised? I feel sorry for you--not. My kids are on their third school in the past three years (one starting 8th at Corbett and the other a senior at Clemens) because of my military commitments and you're complaining? You think this district is the only one making this difficult decision? Yes, I saw my tax assessments/bills go up every year since 1995 as each new school/facility popped up in Guadalupe County so don't complain about your money being spent--it's everyone's money.

Moving a Junior or a Senior is going to impact their college plans and opportunities. Junior year is when these kids need SAT scores, class rankings, GPAs, extra curricular scholarships are pffft gone.
Guess my kid doesn't stand a chance since she's been at three difference high schools in the past 4 years and is starting her senior year at a new school. You what I'm worried about? The fact that I have to help her get through a HS that ranks much lower academically than the the school she was in last year (not in TX).

Cibolo would be better off withdrawing from the Schertz school district and using their growing tax base to educate their own kids insteqd of paying schertz to treat their kids like Gypsies.

Schertz is clearly not going to invest in the infrastructure to accomodate the growth of Cibolo- we need to invest in ourselves.

The only thing that I have a problem with in regards to this rezoning is the really illogical idea of switching those kids that live within walking distance of dobie. I feel that all the schools are excellent schools and my kids will get the education that they deserve, but it doesnt make sense to me to pay more in transportation to take these kids to corbett when they can walk for free to dobie.

The best part will be when the school district decides to start billing for bus services. Bend over!
