New school year

04 May Register online for 2017-18 school year

Clark County School District (CCSD) students will begin classes two weeks earlier than the traditional start date beginning with the 2017-18 school year. The early start date was approved by the Board of School Trustees at their March 23, 2017, meeting. As a result of the new school year calendars, the first day of classes for all CCSD schools will be Monday, Aug. 14, 2017. The move to an earlier start date also means that the school year will end earlier and the last day of classes will be on Thursday, May 24, 2018.

These changes will be in effect for all CCSD schools as the remaining 15 schools that are currently operating on year-round schedules will be converted back to nine-month schools. The main reason for the conversion to an earlier start date is to allow students to complete testing prior to Winter Break, rather than testing shortly after students return from the two-week break.

To learn more about the switch to an earlier start date for school, watch an “Inside Education” interview with Chief Student Achievement Officer Dr. Mike Barton.

Registration for CCSD students for the 2017-18 school year is now underway. Families with currently enrolled students can complete registration using Parent Portal via Infinite Campus (campusportal.ccsd.net). Families new to CCSD may begin their registration process via register.ccsd.net.

Parents or guardians who already have an Infinite Campus account will see an announcement through the Parent Portal and a link connecting them to the 2017-18 registration page. For families with students currently enrolled in the district, the process will take less than five minutes as information is pre-populated on the application for existing CCSD households to reduce the registration time and enhance the registration experience.

To find out what school a student is zoned for, parents may visit ccsd.net/schools/zoning or call the Demographics, Zoning and GIS Department at 702-799-6430.
