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 concerns and successes. 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.

Superintendent Rick Nielsen invited the students to meet with the Superintendent every other month to discuss their concerns and successes. All the students were excited and said they would be willing to come to a collaborative meeting on Wednesdays.
