NODAWAY VALLEY DISTRICT GOALS
April 27, 2018 — The Nodaway Valley Board of Education along with Superintendent Berlau recently spent time discussing and developing goals at work sessions. Prior to the recent meetings, a committee of Board members met with several different groups of stakeholders to obtain input on what the District goals should be for the next 3-5 years. The groups the Board met with included students, teachers, parents, business leaders, retired teachers and community members. The information gathered from those groups were reviewed and discussed by the Board.
