BETTENDORF- The school board is working on ways to improve its leadership.

Monday, August 7, the school board discussed a study taken by parents, staff, and community members. In it, it said 44% of people said the board didn't provide "effective leadership" for student learning. 

In another response, 46% of the people surveyed thought the board had a poor relationship with Superintendent Michael Raso.
