School District Board, School Administrators, and others just check the block and say the right things. However, when there is a real issue with anyone on staff (teachers/counselors/etc.), they revert to us/them mentality and bury you in a maze of bureaucratic requirements. Taxes are out of this world, and check out the School Superintendant's salary, 200K+...yet students must contend with learning in hot, cramped eye-sore boxes separate from the main building. Oh and make the kids run to classes because, and for some sick reason continually impress upon parents, that the school adheres to a strict five mins between classes. Wow! Open talk of drug use among students is common, and many of the school/district policies go unenforced, for example, dress code and bullying goes ignored. Some teachers are good, but many are just riding the pension train and could care less. Many teachers post grades late, use notes and online books, forcing parents to hunt and peck their way around to find out what's going on. Teacher web pages are often not current or exist with only administrative information. Things look good on the surface, but the cities of Schertz and Cibolo have and are growing too fast for this myopic, crony, living in the past school board and administrators. The old saying goes, you can't judge a book by its cover, and on the surface things look good here. However, do your homework, look deeper and what you'll avoid the mistake of moving into this school district of Schertz/Cibolo.
