Cuero ISD improvement projects nearing completion

 

Cuero students return to classes in just a little over three weeks.
 
Campus improvement projects are underway at all but two schools in the district.
 
Following last week’s CISD trustee meeting, Supt. Jim Haley gave a report on some of those projects.
 
At Cuero High School the first home game will be August 29. New stadium seating, restrooms and pressbox are under construction now. Those projects should be completed by that first game.
 
However, one of the final steps in the construction is completing the electrical connections to scoreboard and play clock. While work is scheduled to be completed in time for the first contest, it may be an issue for a scrimmage schedule here on Aug. 22.

Neighborhood watch group formed after break-in

 

Patricia Munoz may never forget the day her home was broken into.
 
“I had just left to the store to get some laundry soap,” Munoz said. “My kids were at school, and I was here alone. I had my windows open, airing the house out.”
 
When Munoz, who lives on East Texas Street, returned from the store, she noticed the window screen had been removed from the window.
 
“I backed out of my driveway and I drove up to my neighbor (Mary Stirneman) and asked her if she’d seen anybody over by my house,” Munoz said.
 
“She said the window screen was gone,” Stirneman said. “We were standing there talking. I said, ‘I’ll go in with you and we’ll check it out.’ She said she was going to call her (her husband) Andrew.”

Cuero ISD employee grievance appealed

 

It took about four hours in closed session to get everyone on the same page but when the Cuero ISD trustees returned to open session, they were in agreement.
 
At the trustee meeting last week, one item on the agenda was listed as a level-three employee grievance appeal. The person filing the grievance was high school math teacher Deborah Pedraza.
 
A level three grievance means she had appealed her complaint from the campus level through the administration and finally to the board.
