Crosby School System Inprovements Needed Ajurvey of the Crosby School systn has been completed and a nort handed to members of the bard of trustees. Tl survey was conducted by C. fman Ellis Jr.. consultant arckect of the School Plant Sects of the Texas Education Agepy. TJ survey was made at the reqest of school trustees. Here it is Abatements contained herein uich pertain to making chafes in sites, school plant fa- cilitk, educational program, orgaization, etc., shall be con- struj as suggestive only and are at tc be considered as directive. 9HOOL POPULATION Anexamination of the school censs figures shows mat the Cros^' District has grown sub- stantlly during the past four yean Being located in Harris Coiin-" it is reasonable to sup- posethat this growth will not only rontinue but will probably accekate. OPERATION Fiencially, the Crosby D i s- trictas had a sound, economical ogration. The 1963-64 cost of instrttion was 5321.24, per pupil as ccipared wish a state - wide averse of S354.76 per pupil, in schoe of the same size. This 530 ps difference may indicate that .*conomy has been over- stresd. Thi present ratio of bonded debt* valuation is approximately 4.!per cent. This leaves the distrk with a remaining maxi- mumlegal bonding capacity of apprcimately SS93.000 for ad- ditioil facilities unless the dis- trict'taxable valuables are in- creasi. Experience indicates that > provide adequate facilities aiistrict should have a min- rmun taxable value of 51,000,000 t each 100 chndren. On this Isis Crosby is just even at preset but with expected growth will son fall behind in its values. EVAUATION OF EXISTING BUILDINGS SNlOR HIGH SCHOOL Thi building, erected in 1957, has fen well maintained and is in goi condition. Unfortunately, it w! built with most class room; smaller than currently recomended. Being located across a city street from other elemrts of the plant, such as tile vmnasium, homemaking and Dcational agriculture, is consitred undesirable. The gymrsium. vocational agriculture, and homemaking are house in a large frame structure, his unit has many inade- quacii in its facilities as well as beg unsightly. I JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL The junior high school which consists of the seventh and eighth grades are boused in an old 1924 two - story building that is in very poor overall condition. An independent engineering report suggests that the building be abandoned and replaced, in which this writer concurs. ELEMENTABY SCHOOL This building also has been well cared for and is in good condition. The original building, erected in 1932. and the additions of 1960 and 1964 hav e adequate facilities and are very functional. DKEW SCHOOL At the trnie of the survey one of toe frame elementary buildings had been damaged by a wind storm and school had been dismissed. This campus contained a good secondary school PETITE PISTONS—Hyperelean- liness. even to the worker's contamination-free clothing, is essential in assembling pumps for Minuteman and Polaris missiles at Borg- Warner's Pesco Products in Bedford, Ohio. The piston, among the tiniest used in any pumps, is the pulsating heart of the hydraulic systems that guide Polaris missiles in flight, and must operate efficiently at fluid temperatures from -65 degrees to 800 degrees P. building and several frame build- Ings all of which are Jn lairfy good condition. LONGKANGE PLAN SUGGESTIONS In view of the expected population growth for this area the following suggestions are offered for consideration by the board of trustees and the administration. 1_ Evaluate the educational program now being offered to determine how well it is meeting the needs of the children. Special thought should be given to the needs of those students who will not be going to college. 2. Prepare long - range plans for the next five to ten years to establish the financial means for providi ng facilities called for by the needed educational program. 3. Acquire a 30 -to 50-acre site in an accessible location and build a complete four-year high school plant. 4. Raze the present two-story junior high school building and the frame gymnasium building. 5. Convert the present high school into a junior high school for grades 6. 7, and 8. Build necessary additions for the gymnasium, lunchroom, etc, 6. Limit the elementary school to five grades. This building needs more storage space for the kitchen. 7. Remove all frame buildings except the gymnasium from the Drew campus and convert this plant to a five - grad-a elementary school. 8. Integrate the entire school system in order to utilize the total C.T.U.'s that the district is eligible for to the best possible advantage. COMMENDATIONS 1. The board of trustees is to be commended for having provided an administrative building where the business of the district can be properly carried on. 2. The board of trustees and the administration are to be commended for facing up to the needs of the district and for taking steps to meet those needs. 3. The students are to be commended for their good citizenship as evidenced by their good behavior and their respect for and care of school property.
