Elgin has made it clear - they will be neighborly but see "no benefit" to a multi-school plan.
The Elgin Board of Education met Thursday night for its monthly meeting with guests from Neligh-Oakdale present — David Wright and Ron Gilg, both of whom are on Neligh-Oakdale's newly formed committee discussing future plans with the Unified District, Clearwater, Ewing and Orchard.
Board members from districts listed above - excluding Elgin - met last week to discuss future plans. Elgin did not attend that meeting due to not having a committee formed for such conversations.
According to Elgin's board minutes, "Elgin was invited by two Neligh board members to send a two person subcommittee to the next area meeting of various school board committees. While Elgin sees no benefit to our district and has no interest in being involved in a numerous school plan, it was decided they would send someone out of respect for their neighbor's invitation."
