The Banner County Board of Education has accepted the resignation of Lana Sides, Superintendent of Schools. The Board also approved a working agreement with the Nebraska Association of School Boards to facilitate the search for a new superintendent.
The search consultants will work in cooperation with the board to identify a search timeline, qualities and characteristics the board/district is seeking in a new superintendent, the interview details, job description, and a salary/benefit package, as well as other critical elements of a successful search process. The board will seek out the staff, student, parent, and community’s involvement in the process. For further details regarding the stakeholder involvement click here.

Breakfast will be served in the FCS room at the high school. At 9:00 a.m., following the breakfast, Banner County School will be hosting a special Veterans’ Day program.
A traditional part of the program honors veterans who may be family members or friends of Banner County patrons and students. We currently have over 100 veterans on our list. Your veteran may be a family member or friend, living or deceased, or they may be currently serving in any branch of the Armed Services. If you know such a person we would like you to submit their name using the form below AND INVITE that person to our breakfast and ceremony. Names that have been previously submitted do not need to be resubmitted.
The names submitted will be read aloud during the ceremony on November 8th. It is not mandatory that the people you submit attend the ceremony, you may submit the name of a friend or relative who is deceased. However, if you have friends or neighbors who can attend please be sure to invite them, as this program is designed to thank them for their service. In order to keep our program on schedule, we ask that each person limit the names they submit to 3 or 4 honorees.
