Bio Summary Jhone Ebert:
Anyone who has worked with her can attest that Jhone M. Ebert brings a heart for equity, a collaborative spirit, and transformative leadership to everything she does. She puts these qualities to work each day in her role as State Superintendent of Public Instruction for Nevada.
Since taking the reins as the chief state school officer for Nevada in 2019, Ms. Ebert has worked tirelessly on behalf of Nevada’s nearly 500,000 students and its 750 schools. She was appointed in April 2019 by Governor Sisolak, who regards her as a change leader and “the best person to set Nevada students up for success.”
An equity champion, Ms. Ebert has rooted her career in the belief that the work is unfinished until every single child has a clear pathway to thrive in school and life. As State Superintendent of Public Instruction, her proudest accomplishment is Nevada’s innovative and responsive COVID-19 recovery efforts, which enabled Nevada’s districts to successfully adapt to deliver distance education and prepare for safe school re-openings. Under her direction, Nevada became the first state nationally to ensure every student participating in distance learning had internet connection and a learning-ready device. During this time of upheaval, Ms. Ebert prioritized providing support and flexibility to districts and schools, while ensuring that all students received the services they need, including nutrition services, special education interventions, English learner supports, professional development for teachers, as well as social-emotional and mental health supports and resources for all community members.
