24 Aug CCSD schools named Nationally Certified Magnet Schools

Clark County School District (CCSD) has proved yet again that it has some of the best Magnet Schools in the country as they continue to excel and be recognized for their efforts by the national Magnet Schools of America (MSA) organization.

The following schools have been named Nationally Certified Magnet Schools:

  • Walter Bracken STEAM Academy
  • Ed W. Clark High School
  • Cashman Middle School
  • East Career and Technical Academy
  • Mabel Hoggard Math & Science Elementary School
  • Northwest Career and Technical Academy
  • Southwest Career and Technical Academy

These schools were among the first 55 schools in the nation to successfully complete a nine-month evaluation process and demonstrate through evidence, reflection, and strategic action that it has established the best practices entailed in the Magnet Schools Standards of Excellence.

Additionally, Walter Bracken STEAM Academy as well as East Career and Technical Academy were two of only 10 schools in the nation to become National Demonstration Schools.

CCSD is a national leader in cultivating successful Magnet Schools. These prestigious honors follow the announcement last March that 23 CCSD Magnet Schools received Magnet Schools of America’s Merit Awards.

MSA also selected Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky as its Superintendent of the Year for the 2016-17 school year. The award recognizes the important work in leadership within school districts to keep Magnet Schools a priority in the portfolio of school choice options.

These schools will be recognized during a ceremony held at the Magnet Schools of America’s 36th National Conference in Chicago, Illinois April 25-29, 2018.
