Board of Education


Board of Education

Our Board of Education consists of six elected members, with each representing the entire Gering Public School District.  We are dedicated to providing opportunities for the success of every student.  Our board is committed to the belief that the strength of a community lies within its public schools.

Together with the administration, our board develops goals and plans on an ongoing basis. Our focus is always on the future of Gering, and we believe we are building the best public school district in Nebraska.

We appreciate and look forward to the continued support of our great community.
