School Improvement

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!
