    A management audit of the Nelson County School District stated the need for a long-term strategic plan for the district and for the uses of technology in the classroom.

    Results of the audit were presented to the school board Jan. 18 by Dr. Jack Herlihy, an Eastern Kentucky University professor.

    “We found that the organizational structure was really in silos and folks had some problems who to report to,” Herlihy told the board.

    Communication between the board and school principals also showed limitations, he said.
