to host Community Engagement Meeting

The Elkhorn Valley Schools Board of Education has scheduled a community meeting for Wednesday, January 26, 2022.  The public session will take place in the School Commons Area at 601 S. Madison Street, Tilden, Nebraska beginning at 7:30 p.m.

 This community discussion is part of a larger Strategic Planning process and will give the Board of Education and district administration the opportunity to listen to community stakeholders. The results 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.  We will be discussing the strengths, accomplishments, and challenges of our school district, the vision, and expectations for our schools and the goals and objectives necessary to design our future. 

 Specific community members 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.  We are inviting staff members, parents, students, community leaders and other interested members of the public to work together with us – so that we may effectively plan for the future of our district and students.  Any patron wishing to attend the session or to submit written comments that will be considered as part of the process is encouraged to do so.  Representatives of the Nebraska Association of School Boards will facilitate the community engagement process.

 To direct the focus of the community engagement meeting, the following specific questions will be addressed:

  • Identify the knowledge and skills a student should possess as a graduate of this school district.
  • Identify the challenges facing the community and how this will affect the school district.
  • Identify what you believe are the top two most important areas the district might focus on to improve and expand learning facilities and grounds. (Functionality of learning space, Safety and security, Building access and parking, Capacity to support student enrollment, Building maintenance, Extracurricular facilities and grounds, Other)
