Message From the President:

“Welcome to the Nebraska Association of Retired School Administrators! We are currently the largest of the five NCSA affiliates under the Nebraska Council umbrella consisting of 729 members from throughout Nebraska and our fine communities.  As a retired group, we also have many members who reside in other states though maintain their Nebraska ties at heart. Each of us as previous Nebraska School Administrators and NCSA members spent a lifetime networking and developing strong personal relationships throughout our professional careers. As retired members of NCSA we can continue to keep in touch with old friends and continue developing new relationships through our association with NARSA members. Our affiliate provides social events specifically designed by and for our members each year in addition to keeping our members abreast of the many influential happenings in Nebraska’s public schools including legislative issues and state / federal mandates which impact our children and youth.  As retired school administrators and active members of NARSA , each of us can put our wealth of experience and wisdom to work continuing to promote excellence within Nebraska Schools. If you are currently a member of NARSA, thank you for your continued contribution to the association and our children’s future.  If you are currently a retired Nebraska school administrator and not an active member of NARSA, please consider joining us on this life-long adventure of promoting continuous progress and achievement for Nebraska’s children and youth through our NCSA Affiliate. We look forward to renewed spirit and growth in NARSA.”
