French District #69
School District #69: French
The French District was formed when districts 41 and 34 were consolidated on July 20, 1901. This document lists the teachers working there between 1891 and 1898.
County Roster of French School District #34 Teachers (1891-1898) – One may note that salaries for teachers declined as the impact of the 1893 depression was felt locally. Also, teachers in the latter half of the decade received room and board as part of their compensation.
One interesting notation on the above document, not reproduced here, is that Bige Eddy did not complete his term of service because “the county bridge was washed out.” Daisy Meays appears to have been hired in his place in April 1894. Bige may not have able to reach the school, but the school remained open.
