Chief Financial Officer leaves Grand Island PS for Ravenna

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (Nebraska) – One of the administrators of the Grand Island public schools returns to Ravenna.

In a Tuesday press release, GIPS announced that Chief Financial Officer Dr. Ken Schroeder will step down effective June 30. From 1 July he will assume the position of superintendent of the public schools of Ravenna, a position he previously held.

Schroeder served as CFO of the GIPS District for two years. The GIPS press release says he helped facilitate and update comprehensive budgeting best practices, collaborated with Buildings & Grounds on a new district-wide facilities master plan, and spearheaded staff development.

Schroeder assumed the position of CFO of GIPS in 2021, replacing Virgil Harden, who retired. Prior to joining GIPS, Dr. Schroeder served as Superintendent for Ravenna Public Schools from 2014 to 2021. Back in Ravenna, Schroeder will replace Bradley Kjar. The Fremont Tribune reported last month that Kjar will take over as superintendent for Tekemah-Herman Public Schools in eastern Nebraska.

In a prepared statement, Schroeder said, “I have enjoyed my time at the Grand Island Public Schools. I have enjoyed the opportunity to grow as a professional and the opportunity to interact with the wonderful Grand Island Public Schools board members and the hard working and dedicated Grand Island Public Schools staff members.

In its press release, GIPS said the district will begin a statewide and national search to replace Schroeder.
