Who We Are
The Nebraska Council of School Administrators (NCSA) is an umbrella organization comprised of more than 2,100 school administrators who serve or once served in Nebraska schools.
We consider ourselves a partner in developing excellence in educational leadership, providing the "tools" necessary for administrators to be successful.
Although school administrators are more aware of problem areas in schools than anyone else, their voices can be drowned out by special interests in politics. NCSA provides strength in numbers to make our voices heard in educational matters in Nebraska.
How is NCSA Governed?
The NCSA Executive Board consists of fifteen representatives, three from each active affiliate, one NARSA representative, and the immediate past chair. Members are elected by their affiliate and serve a three-year term on the Executive Board. The Executive Board annually selects a chairperson from its ranks to direct the work of the Board and represent NCSA.
