Falls City school district orders elections
FALLS CITY (revised) -- The Falls City Independent School District (ISD) board of trustees has ordered an election for May 11, in which voters will decide who will fill three seats on the board. The election was ordered at the board’s Feb. 20 meeting.
Superintendent’s Secretary Terri Crawford confirmed after the meeting that voters will select two candidates, each of whom will serve a three-year term, for the seats currently occupied by board members Eddie Bordovsky and Patrick Jarzombek.
A special election also will be held May 11 to select a third candidate, who will fill a one-year, unexpired term. This is in the wake of the resignation of board member Steve Dziuk.
The board also continues to receive applications for a successor to Superintendent Linda Bettin, who will retire in July. Crawford said applications will be received until Friday, March 15.
In other action, the board approved the district’s technology plan for the years 2013-16. Bettin said following the meeting that the district will strive to improve its infrastructure to accommodate the increased use of mobile devices and other equipment.
Goals include updating computer labs and purchasing mobile devices for use by students and teachers. The superintendent said these mobile devices will be integrated into instruction.
Movement continues on a deal between the Falls City ISD and Mantacore Oil and Gas to lease approximately 0.688 acres of district-owned land located within the city limits. Bettin said that a contract has not been signed, but the board has authorized moving forward on the three-year deal, which would net the district $2,500 per mineral acre with royalties of 22.5 percent.
