District's Mission Statement
The mission of the Neligh-Oakdale School District is to provide an environment where all students will acquire the skills to become lifelong learners and productive citizens in a diverse, technologically changing global society.
Continuous Improvement Plan
According to Rule 10, in order to remain accredited, a school must have a Continuous Improvement Plan in place. The focus of a school improvement plan is implementing the plan, creating the profile, setting the goals, and planning to improve. Part of the process includes a periodic review by educational visitors to provide feedback on the process. A plan is then set back in place to continue accomplishing plans and goals.
Every student, every day!
AQuESTT provides six tenets for enhancing the education system. Those six tenets, which are broken down into two categories, are:
Success, Access, and Support
1. Positive Partnerships, Relationships, and Success
3. Educational Opportunities and Access
Teaching, Learning, and Serving
4. College, Career, and Civic Ready
