NBAPS community survey taking place

The North Branch Area Public Schools (NBAPS) school board is conducting a community survey in June. The survey goal is to better understand stakeholders' attitudes toward the school district as well as toward a possible future operating levy to supplement state and federal funding, which has lagged well behind inflationary factors for decades. The random sample phone survey is being conducted by Baker Tilly (formerly Springsted Inc.), a trusted researcher and school district partner. Please be encouraged to participate in the survey if contacted.
