C. WORKSHOP SESSION
C-1. Consideration, discussion and possible action related to the CSISD November 5, 2013 Bond Election and ethics training
Vice President Paul Dorsett recognized Superintendent Eddie Coulson who led discussion related to ethics training as it pertains to the upcoming November 5, 2013 CSISD Bond Election. CSISD has been meeting with community organizations, trying to get the word out about the bond election, making sure CISSD employees know their responsibilities regarding ethics in their official roles. Questions related to Phase 2 construction regarding the Purchasing Center and repurposing the existing site were answered and discussed. Discussion occurred with Trustees regarding their roles as board members during the election process.
C-2. Consideration, discussion and possible action related to developing a community based accountability system
Superintendent Eddie Coulson led discussion and brainstorming related to what a community based accountability system in College Station ISD should look like. Even though Governor Perry vetoed House Bill 2825, a community based accountability system still makes sense for us. This is just a starting point in the discussion and possible development of this system.

Discussion occurred related to replacing Trustee Randall Pitcock as soon as possible on the PAC committee.

C-5. Consideration, discussion and possible action related to the CSISD representatives on the Appraisal District Board of Directors
Both Tim Jones and John Flynn have served on the Appraisal District Board of Directors for the past two years and are willing to still serve. CSISD Trustees appointed Tim Jones and John Flynn to serve on the Appraisal District Board of Directors for an additional two year term.
C-6. Consideration, discussion and possible action related to the 2013-2014 CSISD student enrollment
Superintendent Eddie Coulson reported that the official enrollment count will be in October 2013, but the initial results show that CSISD continues to grow at a 4% rate. Discussion occurred.
