News Briefs:

Parents in the Norfolk Public School District who are interested in sending their child to an elementary school other than the one in their neighborhood are urged to fill out the boundary exception paperwork soon. Superintendent, Dr. Jami Jo Thompson says the forms are available at all of the district’s elementary schools and on the district’s website. She says the requests for boundary exceptions will be reviewed on April 15th. Thompson also urges those with incoming kindergarteners to register those students as soon as possible. She says because the district keeps a tight cap on the size of kindergarten classes, late-registering students may not be able to attend their neighborhood schools. 

A tribal investigative committee says Winnebago tribal council members have been paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in bonuses and tribal casino gifts - such as free hotel rooms, meals and prepaid debit cards. The committee issued a 10-page report this week. It also found that council members gave tens of thousands of dollars in loans and grants to tribal members - many of whom were likely voters. The Winnebago tribal council empowered the special investigation to look into allegations of corruption. Tribal Chairman John Blackhawk told the Journal Star that the council will examine the report's findings and decide whether to take action against any tribal employees or council members. 

Nebraska lawmakers have approved a bill designed to give nurse practitioners more independence. Senators voted 46-0 Friday to pass the bill, which was vetoed last year by then-Gov. Dave Heineman. Last year's session ended before lawmakers had a chance to attempt an override. The bill by Sen. Sue Crawford of Bellevue would remove a requirement that nurse practitioners get a written agreement to consult with a doctor before they can practice. The so-called integrated practice agreements are designed to ensure that a physician is available for collaboration or referral if a patient doesn't respond to treatment. Supporters of the bill say the agreements make it harder to recruit well-trained nurses and keep them in the state. Doctors expressed concerns about patient safety.

 A disaster preparedness summit is planned this month in Wayne.

Registration deadline for the summit is March 6th. For more information or to register, check the website wayneworks.org.
