The Neligh-Oakdale School Board talked consent agenda, hazing policies, and possible action on a new camera and door system at Monday nights meeting.
It was approved to move forward with the bid from Safe And Secure to upgrade the cameras and door locking system. Principal George Loofe said that he is hoping to install the system over Christmas or summer break, so the school day is not interrupted.
Superintendent Scott Gregory addressed the board about implementing a "hazing" policy since an incident has happened at another Nebraska school this past summer. A policy will be there to protect the students, and to make sure appropriate action is taken.
Both principals said there was decent turnout for the parent/teacher conferences that happened at the end of last month. Mary Schrader was waiting on response from a few more parents that were not able to make the conferences, but was overall pleased with the numbers.
Gregory mentioned many different conferences that are coming up soon for the teachers, and he said the school will be audited this Tuesday through Friday.
The President of the N-O TeamMates program wanted to give the board an update on what has been happening since school started. Andy Beyer said that there are 20 mentors with mentees, but there are still 15 mentees looking for mentors.
"We are just like you," Beyer said. "We are trying to make their lives better."
He mentioned the past and upcoming events, and thanked the board for not charging the program for using the gym for their Rafts & Crafts this next month.
The board ended the meeting with discussing the impressive NeSA results, in which three students received perfect scores.
"We always knew the teacher have done well," board member Brad Higgins said. "This just proves it."
