The Dell Rapids School Board held their latest regular meeting on Monday, March 12th. Among other items discussed, the board finalized the school calendar for the remainder of this year as well as set the date for the school board election.
The Dell Rapids school district has had only one full day of school missed due to the weather this year.
Superintendent Dr. Summer Schultz said, “You have two choices really…make up the day with staff and students, or make up the day with just staff.”
After discussion the board voted to leave the last day of school for students as Wednesday, May 23rd. The missed day will be made up by the staff on Friday, May 25th as an in-service day. This was also the recommendation from Dr. Schultz.
The school board also set the school board election for Tuesday, April 10th. All precincts will be voting at the Dell Rapids Lutheran Church. The public will be voting on two school board openings. The City of Dell Rapids did not have to hold an election this year as all open city council ward spots only had one candidate petition filed per ward.
