Article Image Alt Text

The Johnson County Central Schools’ Board of Education discussed some of the ideas and goals gained from the community input meetings conducted throughout the school year, during its June 12 meeting. The board considered sending out a community survey in order to reach those who may not have attended the meetings. Dr. Galen Boldt, interim superintendent, recommended taking a break from the topic. He thought it would be better to wait until January 2020 when NioCorp Developments is expecting to find out about its final permitting phase for the construction of a niobium mine near Elk Creek.

Board member Arlin Beethe said that the real goal of the board is to pursue the construction of a new elementary or high school facility within the next two to five years.
