End of an era for Falls City sports as Kirchhoffs resign
FALLS CITY -- Falls City Independent School District (ISD) Athletic Director Mark Kirchhoff, who led the Falls City Beavers football team to its 2010 state championship, is headed west. The Falls City ISD board, at its April 18 meeting, approved Kirchhoff’s resignation, said Superintendent’s Secretary Terri Crawford following the meeting.
Kirchhoff, who also teaches mathematics at Falls City High School, has agreed to become the athletic director for the Iraan-Sheffield ISD. The district, which according to the Texas Education Agency was home to 481 students during the 2010-11 school year, is located approximately 62 miles east of Fort Stockton.
Also accepting a position in the Iraan-Sheffield ISD is Kirchhoff’s wife, Tammy, who currently works at Falls City High School as a teacher and coach. Both Kirchhoffs leave Falls City after 16 years with the district, Crawford said.
Also tendering his resignation is Falls City High School teacher and coach Wade Lawrence. Like the Kirchhoffs, his resignation becomes effective at the end of the current school year.
In other business, the board voted to accept certification of unopposed candidates for the upcoming board of trustees election. Since only incumbents Raymond Dziuk and Mindy Jendrusch filed for the two open seats, the board also voted to cancel the election, meaning the two will begin new terms in May.
The board also voted to replace the district’s communications system, which Crawford said will cost approximately $30,000. The system will integrate the telephone and public-address systems for both Falls City High School and the Luther Thomas Elementary School.
