Racial Demographics, 2012[2]
Race Bexar County (%) Texas (%)
White 85.6 80.6
Black or African American 8.1 12.3
American Indian and Alaska Native 1.2 1.0
Asian 2.7 4.2
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander 0.2 0.1
Two or More Races 2.1 1.7
Hispanic or Latino 59.1 38.2

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[3]


The superintendent of North East Independent School District is Dr. Brian G. Gottardy, who was appointed to the position in September 2011. Gottardy has his Bachelor's degree from Texas State University, his Master's degree from Texas A & M University, Kingsville and his doctorate in Educational Administration from Texas A & M University.

As long as the requirements of the Open Meetings Act are satisfied and the right of citizens to apply to the Board for redress of their grievances is not abridged, the Board need not provide a public forum for every citizen wishing to express an opinion on a matter. Reasonable restraints on the number, length, and frequency of presentations are permissible. The Board may limit the number of persons it will hear on a particular subject and the frequency with which they may appear, so long as the regulation does not abridge constitutionally guaranteed rights of freedom of speech and to petition nor unfairly discriminate among views seeking expression.
