No Testimony At Chadron School District Annual Policy Public Hearings


     Nebraska requires school districts to hold public hearings annually to get input on policies for specific issues such as internet use, parental involvement, bullying, student fees, and attendance, but that doesn’t mean they actually get input.

     The Chadron School Board held its public hearings on those 5 topics Monday night and nobody testified.

     That’s not surprising for 2 reasons: there were no members of the public at the meeting and no one has testified at any of those annual hearings since Ginger Meyer became superintendent in 2020 and possibly longer.

     The board members made it clear while opening and closing each hearing within about a minute that they’re ready to listen if anybody comes to testify.
