WILLIAM J. GIBBS JR. Emil Orsack (from left) of the La Vernia Independent School District’s transportation department recognizes outstanding district bus drivers Joan Onderko, Margie Lyro, and Jonathan Arrambidie during the Feb. 2 board of trustees meeting. All three drivers were recognized for attributes including dependability, safety, and work ethic. Arrimbidie also is the district’s 2014-15 Property and Casualty Alliance of Texas Bus Driver of the Year.

Trustees for the La Vernia Independent School District have agreed to a $10,000 budget amendment to fund a demographic study.

Prior to the board’s vote at its Feb. 2 meeting, Superintendent Josť Moreno said the money would be moved from “extra duty” line item to “superintendent contract services.” Information gathered from the study which will be performed by Davis Demographics & Planning Inc. could determine how the district structures plans for future growth. For instance, Moreno said the information could conclude if, when, or where to build an elementary school.

Also during the meeting, the board appointed 25 members to the district’s School Health Advisory Committee (see box).

In other business, the board:

¢Reorganized the finance committee by adding two campus administrators and one facilities department employee

¢Held a public hearing, which included a presentations of the 2013-14 Texas Academic Performance Report and the 2014-15 Campus Performance Objectives. The performance objectives were approved as presented.
