Save the Date: NSBA State Jazz 2021

As many of us begin to put together our schedule for the next school year, I wanted to make sure that you had this date on your calendar as well.  The 2021 NSBA Jazz Festival will be held on Friday, April 9th and 10th and will be hosted by Kearney High School.  
We would love to see you at the 2021 NSBA Jazz Festival!  Please be on the lookout for important information and registration to be coming out in the future.

 

E-Learning Ideas

I hope that you are all well, and coping well with your changing teaching environments and situations.
We have been working on a way for NSBA members to brainstorm and share our ideas for how to adjust our teaching with the circumstances around the COVID-19 virus.  Although all of our scenarios are different, as are our districts' approaches to this situation, I invite you to share your ideas with the membership.  If you want to provide your contact information (in case someone would like to get a hold of you regarding your idea) you may, thought it's not required.

Also, Dan Masters from the NSAA provided us with copyright information, as laid out by the NFHS.  Click here to read their copyright advice.
Again, please stay well, and I hope you share some of your ideas!
