Welcome Interim Superintendent Chris Eberhardt

After a month of an interim superintendent search and sifting through 12 highly qualified candidates, the Brookings-Harbor School District Board of Directors has chosen Mr. Chris Eberhardt to be its interim superintendent. Mr. Eberhardt’s contract was approved at the August 21st board meeting. 

Mr. Eberhardt brings with him a wealth of administrative experiences with over 31 years in a variety of educational roles. He has been the Student Engagement Specialist with Jefferson County School District in Littleton Colorado for the past year. Prior to that, he was a principal at two high schools in Colorado, from 2013-2018. From 2010-2013 he was an assistant high school principal and from 2000-2010 the Director of Alternative Education, both positions in Nebraska. Mr. Eberhardt’s undergraduate and graduate degrees came from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and Doane College respectively.  

A committee of 17 people, including school board members, district staff, teachers and community members participated in the search for an interim superintendent starting in early July.

Mr. Eberhardt will join Brookings-Harbor School District in time for the start of the 2019-20 school year and will be in attendance at the Back-to-School Community Breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27. Eberhardt also hopes to visit every classroom in the first weeks of school.
