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. The students, in turn, discussed their feelings on preparedness for college and careers, the right amount of homework, the use of social media, and the use of technology, specifically one-to-one devices.
