Strosahl hired to lead Kingsland

Posted in Education

SPRING VALLEY - After several months and meetings, Kingsland has a new Superintendent.

Kingsland High School Principal Darrin Strosahl will be the new Superintendent of the School District. He was hired during the board meeting on Wednesday, February 21. Strosahl was selected from a field of six finalists that were interviewed by a committee that was involved in the search process. All of the interviews were public meetings and attended by school board members. Strosahl came to the district in 2001 as a Principal and replaces Greg Ehresmann who has retired. His hire will result in a vacancy in his position as High School Principal.

School Board Recognition Week

Next week will be School Board Recognition Week and Superintendent Strosahl said this past year the board has been burdened with the bond issue duties, along with a building project and now the hiring of a new Superintendent. He said that the board will be recognized this next week in several ways, one of which will be a proclamation signed by the Mayor.

There was obvious pleasure exhibited by the School Board when members of the Student Council thanked each of the board members for the amount of time they spend on the board and the work they perform to make the school a better place. A token of their appreciation was the gift of a clock from the students.

Wellness Program

The employees of the Kingsland District will have a chance to utilize a health risk assessment very soon. It's called an Employee Wellness program and permits employees to go online and seek answers to various health questions and to enter various questions on their health and life style. The School District is picking up the tab; $560.00 for the year for all employees. It is hoped that early diagnosis or detection might result in less time lost at work due to illness or injury.

Activity Calendar

There was some discussion regarding reinstituting the Kingsland Activity Calendar. Some of the board members felt that the calendar was outdated when it went to print. Various activities were changed or cancelled and the public was receiving wrong information. For many years there has been a school calendar and it was, according to staff, dropped when it was hoped those people that were interested would go to the District web site. It was noted that not every one has a computer and has to search for clarification on school events. It was decided to take it to the community .....
