Conroe, March 7 – Conroe Independent School District (CISD) and its Superintendent Curtis Null, the licensed massage therapist and holder of a doctorate in the academic subject of “professional leadership,” has focused your tax dollars like a laser beam on the ground, literally. In addition to $23,146,160, which CISD intends to spend on carcinogenic and accident-prone turf for athletic fields, the school district has included $204,000.00 for two dance floors in the $807,000,000.00 bond package. That’s right, dance floors.
Don’t worry, CISD has plans for several other dance floors as well.
CISD intends to spend $102,000.00 on The Woodlands High School, so it has a 1,200 square foot dance floor with 4,500 mirrors and bars. The school district also intends to spend $102,000.00 on Conroe High School, so that it will have a wood dance floor, of indeterminate size, along with 4,500 mirrors and bars.
Caney Creek High School, Hauke Alternative Intermediate High School, Knox Junior High School, and The Woodlands College Park High School will all eventually get wood dance floors, along with 4,500 mirrors and bars, so that they’ll have facilities just as nice as Grand Oaks High School, The Woodlands High School, and Conroe High School.
When this newspaper asked CISD to disclose what improvements there will be in educational outcomes from the $807 million bond package with respect to the four primary measures – reading comprehension in the 4th grade, mathematics ability in the 8th grade, high school graduation rate, and postsecondary education participation rate – CISD was unable to provide an answer but did note that the bond had nothing to do with educational outcomes. Instead, CISD based the bond on demographics.
Apparently, the demographic study of CISD has indicated that there is a strong need for wooden dance floors!
