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 Superintendent of Public Instruction for Nevada, where she works tirelessly on behalf of Nevada’s nearly 500,000 students and its 750 schools. As State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Ms. Ebert led 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. She has also successfully revamped Nevada’s 54-year-old funding formula, replacing it with a formula that allocates resources in a more equitable, student-centered way. Prior to her time leading Nevada's education system as Superintendent, Ms. Ebert served as Senior Deputy Commissioner for P-20 Education Policy for NY State and Chief Innovation and Productivity Officer and Chief Technology Officer for Clark County Schools.
