Bureau of Educational Research and Field Services

For many years the Department has provided the resources of the Bureau of Educational Research and Field Services to school districts and policy makers in Nebraska. In times of expansion, the work of the Bureau was directed toward facilities planning. In times of declining enrollment, a significant amount of work has been directed at helping school districts plan for re-organization. Over the years members of the Bureau have also assisted state policy makers by carrying out studies aimed at particular educational policy issues. For information about the services of the Bureau, please contact Brent Cejda at or 472-0989.
