She will keep the Presidential title through July 2023 when the President’s term ends. 

“I don’t think it changes much in my attitude, that I want to do what’s best for Falconer, and the kids, and the community,“ explained Schrader. “It’s just a different chair, maybe a little more responsibility, but my heart is still in the same place.”

Right now there is an empty seat, which the board will have to fill either through appointment or special election within 90 days of the former President’s Resignation.

Beckerink has since accepted a new role within the school district.
