Another school year is upon us as the Dell Rapids Public school students (and parents) will begin school registration this week. A complete listing of grade registration times are located on this website under ‘School News’ (just re-click on the News button and then School News).
A couple of other changes occurred over the summer for everyone to be aware of including the new start time for Dell Rapids Public schools. The new time approved by the board in late June will be 8:30 a.m. And, on the subject of the school board, one new member was added this summer. Steve Stofferahn has become a part of the board while Tom Morris is the new President of the Board of Education. Another item decided this summer was there will be two meetings of the school board on a monthly basis (the pay for board members stays the same as each member will receive less per meeting, but equating to the same dollar amount). This school year also welcomes a new Superintendent to our community. Summer Schultz was hired to replace Tom Ludens. Big Sioux Media will be interviewing Schultz in the near future and will have the question/answer session posted here.
