Jhone Ebert serves as Superintendent of Public Instruction in Nevada for nearly 500,000 students and its 750 schools. In January 2023, she was reappointed by Governor Joe Lombardo and has served both Republican and Democratic governors.
As State Superintendent, Ebert successfully shifted Nevada's 54-year-old funding formula to the Pupil Centered Funding Plan, a formula that allocates resources in a more equitable, student-centered way. Superintendent Ebert has also spearheaded effective educator retention and recruitment efforts to build out Nevada's teacher pipeline. This effort included investing more than $20 million dollars to Incentivize Pathways to Teaching. Under her leadership, the Nevada Department of Education has expanded Career and Technical Education opportunities to ensure Nevada students are future-ready. The program has seen a 32 percent increase in student enrollment in the completer level course, helping to ensure more students are eligible for the College and Career Readiness Diploma. Nevada has also proven itself to be a leader in computer science education. More than 95 percent of Nevada high school students attend a school that offers foundational computer science.
Ebert’s honors include the UNLV College of Education Alumna of the Year, the International Society for Technology in Education's 2020 Annual Impact Award, the National School Boards Association's Technology Leadership Network 20 to Watch, the CCSD Excellence in Education Hall of Fame Award, and the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching.
Ebert received her Master of Education in Instructional and Curricular Studies from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and her Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from California State University Fresno.
