CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII-NEWS) - A variety of topics were discussed over at a scheduled meeting with the public and the Superintendent of C.C.I.S.D. Roland Hernandez this morning.
 
 
 
 
It's called "Coffee with the Superintendent" and it was held over at the Jason's Deli restaurant on Airline road Thursday morning.
 

 
 
Several topics included in this morning's discussion were the consolidation of schools through an already approved $194,000,000 bond proposal for the November ballot from C.C.I.S.D., and update on the facilities that the school district maintains, as well as the recent "Stranger Danger" cases that increased over the last couple of weeks.
 
 

 
 
 
Speaking and addressing the crowd at the restaurant, Superintendent Hernandez said, "Our police department is at all of these schools and we are definitely going to pick up the presence." 
 
 
 
Doctor Hernandez also addressed a rise in concern for parents on the west side of Corpus Christi, as a proposal on the November ballot will combine students of Cunningham and South Park middle school, at a new facility on the South Park middle school grounds. The bond will also combine students at Cullen middle school and HAAS middle school.
 
 

 
To accommodate future students of the combined Cullen and HAAS middle school, Superintendent Hernandez says that there would be renovations at HAAS middle school to increase the size of the campus, since there is some space to expand the school on at it's current location.
 

 
 
If the taxpayers approve the bond on the November ballot, both Cunningham and Cullen middle school would be demolished.
 

 
 
One of those in attendance for today's meeting, was Doctor Nancy Vera, President of the Corpus Christ American Federation of Teachers. 
 
 
 
Doctor Vera said in reference to the consolidation of schools, "Personally, I am not going to vote for this bond, even though I support children all the way, because I believe this is not a good thing for the children.  As an organization we are still debating or not whether we should support this bond."
