Kyle Kluender of Humboldt has been appointed to the Humboldt Community School District Board of Directors.
The appointment of Kluender took place in a special meeting of the board on Monday morning (Feb. 18). He was later administered the Oath of Office at the board’s regular monthly meeting Monday night.
Kluender fills out the term of Director District No. 2, previously held by Jennifer Berte, who stepped down last month after serving seven years on the board. The term for District No. 2 will not expire until 2015, but Kluender will have to run for election in September to fill out the remaining two years.
In other action, the board approved the 2013-2014 school calendar. The first day of school will be Thursday, Aug. 15. The first semester will end on Dec. 20. The second semester will begin Jan. 7 and conclude on May 21.
“Surveys show that 95 percent of the students want to finish the semester before the Christmas break,” School superintendent Greg Darling said.
