School Board continues climate/culture discussion

Boone Central School Board held further discussion Monday night with Marcia Herring of the Nebraska Association of School Boards (NASB) on climate and culture of the district.
About 40 people attended the board meeting, but they did not address the board during the work session.
Herring and her colleagues at NASB had reviewed staff perceptual survey results. They also met with district staff members on May 4 and also interviewed administrators and board members. She distributed information from that process to the board and administrators, but not to the public.
Herring cited three primary areas that have contributed to climate and culture concerns within the district. Those are:
1. Trust and transparency;
2. Communications, and
3. Accessibility.
The board discussed its options in making improvements aimed at resolving these issues.
