18 Jun Nominations to name three new schools now being accepted

The Clark County School District (CCSD) is accepting nominations through July 13, 2018, to name the three new elementary schools slated to open in in the fall of 2019 as part of the 2015 Capital Improvement Program. These schools will be named for:

1) outstanding former CCSD personnel and former School Board trustees who have demonstrated exceptional leadership locally in the field of education in Clark County and have consistently demonstrated the character to inspire students; or

2) outstanding individuals who are not educators by profession, but serve as a positive role model to children and to the community, and who have demonstrated exceptional leadership locally toward the advancement of education or humanity in Clark County.

In addition, it is important to know there are restrictions pertaining to the nominations. In order for a former employee to be considered, they must have been separated from CCSD for at least two years in order to be considered as a namesake. Elected officials, including former trustees, must be out of office for a minimum of three years.
