FALLS CITY -- The Falls City Independent School District (ISD) board of trustees has named Tylor Chaplin as the lone finalist in its superintendent’s search. The unanimous decision came at the conclusion of the board’s April 17 meeting.

Chaplin, a 40-year-old married father of two daughters, currently is the principal of the Huckabay School, located outside Stephenville. The school, which he said has an enrollment of approximately 165 students, is located approximately 80 miles southwest of Fort Worth and is the only school in the kindergarten through 12th-grade Huckabay ISD. Like Falls City ISD, the Texas Education Agency gave Huckabay ISD an “exemplary” rating for the 2011-12 school year.

According to his teaching certificate, viewable on the State Board for Educator Certification’s website, Chaplin’s Texas teaching career began in 1995. In addition to being certified as both a principal and a superintendent, he is certified to teach history, physical education, and English as a Second Language.

The new superintendent is set to take the helm in July. Chaplin will replace current Superintendent Linda Bettin, who has decided to retire after eight years in that position. He enters a district that, according to Falls City High School Principal Christy Blocker, has a total kindergarten through 12th grade enrollment of 359 students, with an average daily attendance rate of 98 percent.

The decision to select Chaplin as the lone finalist came after a closed session that lasted almost two hours. Board President Raymond Dziuk advised at 6:33 p.m. that the board would convene in closed session to “consider/approve salaries for principals and athletic director,” citing relevant chapters of the state’s Open Meetings Act related to deliberations on personnel. He neglected to mention that the board also would address the next agenda item related to interviewing superintendent finalists.

Despite this, the board did not reconvene in open session to vote on the salaries before interviewing Chaplin. Instead, it reconvened at 8:30 p.m., voting unanimously to approve the salary increases without offering any details. The board then cast its vote related to the superintendent’s finalist before adjourning a minute later.

Under state law, the board must wait a minimum of 21 days after announcing a finalist before officially hiring them as the new superintendent.

In other business, the board:

•Voted to approve a two-year extension of the district’s depository contract with the Falls City National Bank.

•Was informed that 26-year food-service employee Lillian Moy will resign at the end of the school year, but will remain available to serve as a substitute.


In attendance: Board members Raymond Dziuk, Stephen Dziuk, Mindy Jendrusch, Jerry Jendrusch, Eddie Bordovsky, Patrick Jarzombek, and Alfie Kowalik; Superintendent Linda Bettin, Superintendent’s Secretary Teri Crawford, and school nurse Bernadette Lyssy.
