Jhone M. Ebert

Clark County School District, Las Vegas, NV
Chief Technology Officer

Jhone M. Ebert enjoys her work in the 5th largest school district in the nation, the Clark County School District, in Las Vegas, NV. She is one of the first Chief Technology Officers in the nation to oversee two schools, the CCSD Virtual High School and Academy for Individualized Study High School. Through her experience as an educator and as a parent, she understands the need to move student learning beyond the 8 am to 3 pm classroom environment. To accomplish this vision, she and her team have ensured that every CCSD school has wifi to improve access and allow students to use devices during classroom instruction. She led the restructuring of the Technology Division and is working with the school and business community to reach the Superintendent’s vision of 100,000 students in blended and online learning by 2015. The team is also working with the Clark County Board of School Trustees and the community to fully implement a bring-your-own-technology environment in CCSD schools. Recently, Ebert has been honored as a “20 to Watch” by the National School Boards Association’s (NSBA) Technology Leadership Network (TLN) and was recognized as one of 50 education innovators that have led the way and provided best-practice models to imitate by the Center for Digital Education.
