USD 115 board approves funding for FBLA trip

(KMZA)--The Nemaha Central Board of Education approved funding to help pay for a trip by the high school FBLA club to Orlando, Florida for national competition when they met Monday evening.

FBLA sponsor Kurtis Tatkenhorst, along with students Ryan Uphaus and Carter Kramer, requested funds to help pay for the trip.

The Board approved providing $600 for each student, plus $600 for Tatkenhorst.

In other business, Superintendent Tavis Desormeiers reviewed the new open enrollment policy for non-resident students.

The policy is the result of legislation passed and signed by Governor Kelly in 2022.

The law, which will take effect with the 2024-25 school year, will allow students to transfer to any school in Kansas as long as the school has space.

The board approved the policy as presented.

The meeting marked the first for new school board member Alex Bergstrom, who was appointed last month to fill the unexpired term of Amy Huerter, who resigned effective, December 31, 2023.
