FALLS CITY -- Stellar performance continues to be the order of the day for the Falls City Independent School District (ISD).

At its Oct. 16 board meeting, Superintendent Tylor Chaplin informed the board that the district had received a perfect score on this year’s Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas. According to the report, the district enjoys a rating of “superior achievement,” based largely on the 2012 fiscal year’s personnel and student-related data. Falls City ISD scored 70, based on a test in which a passing score was 52.

The district also is enjoying near-perfect property-tax collection, according to attorney John T. Banks of Perdue, Brandon, Fielder, Collins & Mott, which aids the district in obtaining payment on delinquent accounts. Banks’ report, which considers tax years 2007-11, indicates that the district consistently collected more than 99.9 percent of taxes levied. For instance, in 2011, when the district levied $1,535,912, only $1,264.25 has gone uncollected as of Sept. 30, 2013.

In other business, Chaplin informed the board that efforts for the district to purchase a property located near the corner of U.S. 181 and C.R. 212 just south of the city limits are ongoing. Surveys are delayed, due to some discrepancy over the property’s actual acreage. Chaplin said that while records reflect the property measures 56.4 acres, it might be less due to widening of U.S. 181 that occurred in 1950.

The district is purchasing the land in case it decides to construct a new school building. The board is weighing its options between renovating the district’s current building on North Nelson Street in Falls City that houses both the Luther Thomas Elementary School and Falls City High School, or constructing a new building. This will be the topic of a facility planning session set for Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m.

Falls City Independent School District board of trustees meeting Oct. 16. In attendance: Board members Patrick Jarzombek, Raymond Dziuk, Jerry Jendrusch, Alfie Kowalik, Eddie Bordovsky, Marlon Moczygemba, and Mindy Jendrusch; Superintendent Tylor Chaplin, Superintendent’s Secretary Teri Crawford, Principal Christy Blocker of Falls City High School, and Principal Phillip Zwicke of the Luther Thomas Elementary School.
