Bettin is currently on her eighth year as FCISD superintendent and has served many other years in the education profession. After a long and dedicated career as an educator, Bettin says that the time to retire has come.
“It was with mixed emotion,” said Bettin of her decision to retire. “I will miss the Beaver Nation.”
The resulting opening for a new district superintendent (to begin in the 20013-20014 school year) will be advertised on the Texas Association of School Administrators’ website, with qualified applications to be reviewed in March.
Also at the meeting, the board of trustees accepted the resignation of board member Steven Dziuk. Dziuk had to resign his seat due to the relocating of residency outside the school district. His seat will remain vacant until the board elections in May of this year, at which time an individual can run for the unexpired term of his seat, which is through May of 2014.
Dziuk will still maintain a leadership role in the district, however. The recently formed Falls City Education Foundation selected him as the president of the organization. District officials said that even though Dziuk had to resign as a FCISD board member, he will still stay on as president of the Falls City Education Foundation.
“He’s done an awesome job with the school district,” said Bettin of Dziuk. “He will still be involved in student life and activities, not as a board member, but as a Foundation board member.”
