Frith won Tuesday's school board election over Tammy Reierson and Terri Mertens. He will fill a three year term on the board.
Other topics that were discussed included the financial report, increase in food service, resignations, and the spring team scholar report.
The financial report seems to be going well and superintendent Scott Privratsky seems to be pleased.
“Financially, the year is going just like we planned,” said Privratsky.
The board decided to add an $80,000 increase to the food service because they are already over their allotted amount. It was also announced that lunch prices will increase by 15 cents during the 2013-14 school year.
Speech/english teacher and head softball coach Kayla Frappier and second grade teacher Kara Buchhop announced their resignations from the Devils Lake school district.

The speech team (3.31), band (3.35), orchestra (3.56), soccer team (3.39), baseball team (3.33), softball team (3.55), drama club (3.45), boys track (3.24), and girls track (3.48) all earned the award.
