Did you all read in the classifieds of the Current that our school distict is now under a warned district by TEA? I think we need to make the School Board and Administration accountable for this. We could end up not being recognized as a public school in the state of Texas, if we keep doing what we have been doing. I think it's time we clean up the problem. What do you all Think? I also noticed an RV trailer out by the baseball field and was told this is where the principal lives. So now we have to pay his water, his electicity and have they have cameras to watch his every move. Wake up people they are taking advantage of us. He has to reside here but why do we have to pay for him? Isn't it bad enough we pay for Saenz and her family to live here? Come on wake up school board, your responsible for all this bull. Our kids can't pass the TAKS because we have teacher that are working that don't care they just want a pay check. Not all though, just some. We don't have money for good teachers but we are getting a $400,000 dollar bus barn!! Let's take care the buses and not our kids??? This is sorry.WAKE UP PARENTS.

Well I was told the principal lives in one of the campers, and his assistant principal lives in the other.. MY MY how convenient for him... As far as the bus barn that was needed long ago.. long before the new concession, or the new cafeterias.

Instead of being just a parent how about running for school board or becoming a teacher so you can make a difference. better yet become superintendent. Otherwise your just a bunch of lifeless hot air living of of welfare who does not even pay taxes to the school. anyway This country as a whole is in big trouble while our government is wasting money. Remember come when it's time to vote. Stop supporting democrats and their ideologies of spend more = better.

Why is it that you assume on on welfare and that I don't pay taxes idiot. I pay my share of taxes and I'm not talking about our whole government, just the Cotulla ISD. Read the paper and see for yourself. We need to make changes and no!! Oh I know how hard our teachers work to help our kids but how is a stupid bus barn going to benefit our schools? I did vote and do vote at every election. It's time to get these kiss ass board members out. They are there just to benifit their own kids. Come on white kids in bilingual classes??? Wake UP COTULLA!!!! Oh yea leyt's not forget putting Saenz's kid in NHS 6 weeks before schools out. Read the paper, never done before for time because it's her kid. WOW you all have a big P on your forheads.

The school district is only half of the problem. The other half is some of you parents who fail to educate your kids on whats right and wrong. Yes there may be problems with the school district, and yes they need to make changes, but it has to start at home first. A lot of you parents have no idea whats going on with your child at school or even at home for that matter. And I say this because every night, even school nights, i see young kids walking the streets, trespassing through private property. I even saw 2 separate groups of kids fighting each other. how is a child ever going to do well in school when they're roamimg the streets at night when they should be at home doing homework or sleeping?? Some of you parents dont have the balls to lay down the law at your own house, yet you come on topix demanding changes at the schools!! There are many great parents out there who are involved in their childrens lives at home and at school. Unfortunately, there arent enough of you. Thats the problem in the schools nowadays. You can not expect the schools to teach and raise your kids. Raising them properly is YOUR job!! not the school's. And if your child cant pass the TAKS, dont start out by blaming the teachers. Students who cant pass the TAKS usually dont study, dont do their homework, are disruptive in class. Guess what parents?? All of this starts at home. you need to lay down the law at home and make them study and do their homework. your children dont pay bills at home! YOU DO!!

My kids do pass their TAKS and behave but then they go to college and need to take remediation classes because Saenz hires teachers that are coming form Nuevo Laredo and other rejected teachers. We need to pay our teachers better and not the principals light and water. We don't need a nice bus barn for our buses. Wake up Cotulla our district is in the worst position it's ever been while administration is making big bucks.

Well First of all "Cotulla Parent" they decide if they want take bilingual classes, not you but thanks for the opinion, and ALSO Mrs. Saenz's Kids DESERVE to be in NHS, they're smart as well as all the other kids who made in NHS and the other Canidites who didnt.Since the SENIORS changed the NHS to every SEMISTER not the first semister of every year it wasn't Mrs Saenz's idea.She actually supports our education,and all of our events were active in(sports band mariachi etc.) non like you, you probably dont. So think twice before saying something stupid on topix and not to her or the school board, maybe you should be attending those,(if you want a change to be made) think about whats actually going around the campus because you start being the schools damn spy. Sorry we have lifes, and it is the students RESPONSIBILITY to study, the teachers teach what Cscope tells them to, its our job to listen in class and study what we've learned. Maybe its you who has the big P on your forehead. Thanks,(:

even if they don't pay taxes the owners of the property they live in do (an making money off the rent). so taxes are being paid it don't matter who pays them but they are so everyone has a voice.
true that

i hear you. when they bought that building on main st which was expensive i thought they should of invested in our students education. now the new middle school and barn and senior trip and water and electricity that money should of been used for hiring good expirenced teachers. hire security guards in high school cuz some of these kids are out of control. now money should be coming in from property taxes because they have been raised and found homes in ranches which before didn't pay taxes well use that for good educated teachers and bring back god into our schools which teaches right from wrong and morals

that is right theses teachers at chs are out on trainings and workshops and the students are stuck with a sub (free day for them just to slack off) dont u think they should hve these trainings afterschool or in the summer that way it wont have a an affect on these students
My thoughts

You know I think that would be a great think for teachers to attend summer training and workshops! If I am not mistaken they get paid through the summer so why not work through the summer! The teachers being out of class could be hurting our kids education since most of the subs are more like sitters! Well not all but most!

Teachers love being out of the classroom going to "TRAININGS" at region 20. Many of the trainings are like half a day. They spend the rest of the time shopping.I hear they are hiring another librarian, and an LVN for the high school. What's the reasoning for that? Where will the money come from?

Te money will come from tax payers including tax money from Ecinal and then the school district will save alot of money by only having to support 3 schools not the 4th "ENCINAL" lol
I see

Encinal has been a recognized campus for two years in a row with the least resources maybe if we start taking things away for these spoiled teachers here in cotulla we will see results. As parents we all know unspoiled kids appreciate the little things. Give Encinal a dime they make a dollar give cotulla a dollar they own you money. Who knows with Encinal this year the school district really did a number on them and sent them a curve ball. They know what I mean.
