The Nebo School Board of Education and Superintendent Nielsen meets 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.

This month, the Nebo School Board asked the high school Youth Board students questions. The high school students, in turn, discussed their feelings on preparedness for college and careers, the right amount of homework, the use of social media and technology, specifically one-to-one devices. The students shared out what they liked best about their respective high school’s culture. The School Board of Education met with the junior high students in January.

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.
