At their Tuesday, Feb. 13 meeting, the Hen­dricks School Board vot­ed to pair with the Estell­ine, South Dakota school district for athletics and academics. As the Estell­ine School Board will also need to vote on the issue of pairing with Hendricks, Superintendent Bruce Houck said the “door isn’t closed” to other options.
Houck and Hendricks School Board Chairman Tom Olson explained that in speaking with the Deubrook and Estelline school districts, the com­mittee had gone by the list of requirements pro­vided by parents and that Estelline had met most of the items on the list. Houck added that of the two districts, HPS would have a better chance of having “more of a 50/50 partnership” with Estell­ine.
