Frazee adds kindergarten section, staff

Frazee-Vergas School District is growing enough the school board has agreed to add another kindergarten section and staff for the 2009-2010 school year.

"Four kindergarten, four first grade," Dean of Students Troy Haugen said. "It's a good problem to have. We're running out of room again."

He added that last summer, the district added 10 more students over the summer, so numbers could climb for kindergarten enrollment by the time school starts. Anticipated enrollment now is 72 pupils.

The school board also gave approval to the 2008-09 district budget and the 2009-10 budget, and approved providing periodic evaluation of the superintendent and the school board.

"We do this on a yearly basis, by the way," Chairman Dana Laine said of the evaluation approvals.
