Northeast Neb. school district considers options to combat declining enrollment
Bloomfield, Neb. residents talk about the future of their school.
One Siouxland school district presented its community members with a plan to combat declining enrollment numbers, while increasing educational opportunities for its students.
Members of the Bloomfield, Nebraska community heard a presentation about the possibility of their school combining with the districts of Plainview, Osmond, Wausa, and Creighton to create one state of the art school district.
The meeting included information discussed during the five school's recent study, committee meetings, and a question and answer portion.
School administrators says each school involved in these discussions have staff and resources the other districts don't have.
“Collectively, we have enough to offer our kids, with all the staff that have specialized areas from the five schools, a top notch diversified education," says Bob Marks, the Superintendent of Bloomfield Community Schools"
The response from those in attendance was positive, with some members praising the school board for being proactive in trying to find a solution to the enrollment decline.
The Plainview School District is planning to hold a similar meeting with its community members on Monday, May 5.
