The relationship of board members who were seen vacationing together was seen as devaluing the other school board members, according to those who spoke during last night's NLCS school board meeting.

"Regardless, I welcome this conversation. But I think it is wise, if we all drop all our stones before we do. I once thought naively that eradicating all examples of favoritism is the best solution. When a large organization is placed in a small community, it is difficult to accomplish this an unnecessary pursuit. Instead developing transparent policies around performance and accountability can mitigate our reality of the human condition," said Unger following the board meeting last night.

The newest North Lawrence Community School board told the public during their reorganization meeting that they will be more open and transparent. The school board says they will work to rebuild the trust of the community.
