School Board Approves K-W Superintendent Contract


The Kenyon-Wanamingo school board approved a new three year contract with Superintendent Beth Giese at the March meeting. Giese took the position for the 23-24 school year and the schoolboard members stated that they were very pleased with her performance. Her salary was increased to $123,000 for the coming school year and will be $125,460 for the 25-26 year and $127,970 for the 26-27 year.

The state has approved the Statutory Operating Debt plan for the district submitted last month and the school is on good footing to resolve the budgetary problems which have faced the district in the previous years. The approval by the state gives the district more autonomy on decisions moving forward.
