Youth School Board meets with Nebo School District Board of Education

Submitted by lana.hiskey on Thu, 01/15/2015 - 4:11pm

A highlight for the Nebo School Board of Education is to meet with students from each of the high schools and junior high schools on a quarterly basis. Each Youth Board representative is selected by his/her principal to be a spokesperson for their school.

The Nebo School Board took this opportunity to ask the Youth Board students questions concerning college and career readiness, technology and one-to-one devices, and readiness for mathematics.

An advantage of these group discussions for students is to learn from each other and implement successful ideas in their own schools. This sharing opportunity promotes friendships between the schools in our Nebo School District that is growing about 650 students yearly with over 32,000 students this year.
