CARSON CITY, Nev. – Today, the Nevada Department of Education (NDE or
Department) opened applications for the Superintendent’s
Teacher Advisory Cabinet (STAC). NDE will accept applications

The mission of the STAC is to elevate educators as
experts, advisors, and leaders beyond the classroom. The STAC is comprised of
exceptional educators from across Nevada who represent district and charter
schools across the State. Members of the STAC serve for two years, meeting on
a quarterly basis to engage in robust conversations with NDE leadership,
provide feedback that informs Nevada's education policy, and collaborate with
“We are committed to keeping the priorities and
perspectives of teachers central to our work at the Nevada Department of
Education,” said State Superintendent Jhone Ebert. “Participating in
the STAC is a phenomenal opportunity for any Nevada teacher who is looking to
have their voice heard on a Statewide level and take on new leadership
A key stakeholder group, the STAC's primary purpose
is to inform and advise the Nevada Department of Education (NDE) on
initiatives and priorities. Members not only provide insight from their
experiences, but also serve as ambassadors in their school communities. For
their time and participation, each STAC member may receive up to 15
professional learning hours per year.
NDE requests applications from teachers who meet the
requirements listed on the STAC
application form, including three or more years of experience as a
licensed education professional in Nevada. Teachers who are selected for STAC
will serve two-year terms and are eligible to reapply for one additional term
for a total of four years.
“Participating as a member of STAC has been an
invaluable leadership experience and I highly recommend that all qualified
teachers in Nevada apply for the 2022-24 cohort,” said Jerri Kerns,
teacher at Riverview Elementary School in Lyon County School District and
2018-21 STAC member. “Through STAC, I have had opportunities to be more
hands-on with State programs, and my involvement in the group has had a
longstanding impact on my perspective as an educator.”
This will be the second cohort of Nevada’s STAC,
with the inaugural cohort serving from 2018-21.
