A Message From Dr. Bell  

February 08, 2016

I just got back from the Nebraska Association of School Boards Legislative Issues Conference. It seems like most years that things will go smoothly and no new items will be legislated to “help” us do our jobs and then WHAM the list grows and the conversations begin. Here is your yearly reminder – stay informed about legislative actions and communicate with your representatives concerning issues that are important to you.

Well, I’m back to my writing after a two day hiatus due to a blizzard. I’m hoping all of you survived in fine fashion and have had the opportunity to recharge. Once the ESU 10 staff braves the icy roads we will once again work hard to “partner with stakeholders to meet changing needs through professional expertise in providing services, learning opportunities and support.” It seems like there is much to do this time of year and we have already begun to replace staff that have resigned or retired. The systemic process to maintain a quality Program of Services is challenging – yet exciting.  

This will be an abbreviated article this month, but know that we are working diligently and our focus is on serving you!
