Falls City ISD orders elections
FALLS CITY -- Two trustee seats will be available in the Falls City Independent School District (ISD) in the May 12 election, which the board ordered at its Feb. 15 meeting. Following the meeting, Superintendent Linda Bettin said trustees Raymond Dziuk and Mindy Jendrusch currently hold those seats.
Also during the meeting, the board:
•Accepted the resignation of the district’s food service director, for whom a replacement has not been selected.
•Granted two-year contract extensions for Bettin, Principal Christy Blocker, and Athletic Director Mark Kirchhoff.
In other district news, enrollment continues to increase. Bettin said the district is now home to 370 students, up one from last month. This includes 190 kindergarten through sixth-grade students in the Luther Thomas Elementary School and 180 seventh- through 12th-graders in the Falls City High School. She does not believe that the region’s oil and natural gas boom is directly responsible for this growth.
“A lot of families are returning,” Bettin said. “Some had land here and are just now deciding to build. We’ve also got a few transfers. It’s a hodgepodge of different reasons.”
