Friday, October 10, 2014

The Nebraska Association of School Boards (NASB) Board of Directors and staff recognized the Norris School District Board of Education as a 2014 President’s Award recipients during the Nebraska City Region Meeting on Wednesday, October 8, 2014.  “Just over 3 percent of the districts in the state earned this distinction, so it’s a pretty remarkable accomplishment and testament to the outstanding volunteerism of our Norris School Board,” said Superintendent Dr. John Skretta.

This award of distinction recognizes the Norris Board’s collective volunteer time and commitment to education.  The criteria for this award requires that all board members participate in learning opportunities to grow in their governance role by attending education workshops and conferences, conduct a leadership/district goal planning annual retreat, and share in the legislative advocacy for public education.  The Norris Board is one of eight boards from across the State of Nebraska receiving the 2014 award.

NASB is a private, nonprofit organization that serves the needs of Nebraska public school districts and Educational Service Unit board members.
