Centura Public Schools Board of Education Hosts Community Engagement

community involvementThe opportunity to listen to community priorities and expectations has been

scheduled for Wednesday, December 16, 2015 by the Centura Board of

Education. The public session will take place at the Boelus Community Center

beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The community discussion will help formulate a vision of the future, and

identify goals and strategies necessary to move the district forward to meet

the challenges of the 21st century. Discussion will be on strengths,

accomplishments, and challenges of the school district, the vision, and

expectations for the schools and the goals and objectives necessary to

design its future.

Specific participants in the Community Engagement have been invited by the

district for two reasons: to ensure that a broad cross-section of

interests, backgrounds and perspectives are included and to ensure that

board members are able to hear from all participants in a purposeful and

efficient manner. Staff members, parents, students, community leaders and

other interested members of the public are also invited to obtain an

effective plan for the future of the district and students. Any patron

wishing to attend the session or to submit written comments to be considered

as part of the process is encouraged to do so. The district must receive

written comments prior to the start of the meeting. The Nebraska Association

of School Boards, Marcia Herring, will facilitate the community engagement


Please contact the school at 308-485-4258, 308-226-2494, or if you plan to attend.
