22 Sep Informational meetings to focus on Nevada’s Achievement School District and Turnaround Schools

The Clark County School District (CCSD) is holding a series of informational meetings regarding Nevada’s Achievement School District (ASD) and School Review Process. Due to recent legislation regarding ASD, CCSD has a heightened sense of urgency surrounding the 2016-17 School Review Process. The school district has identified 90 CCSD schools that meet the minimum criteria for conversion to a charter school within the State’s Achievement School District. According to Assembly Bill 448, only six schools will be chosen statewide to become ASD schools for the 2017-18 school year.

It is critical to note that this notice does not mean that all schools will migrate to the CCSD Turnaround Zone or Nevada’s Achievement School District. Rather, the district is being proactive because these identified schools are eligible for consideration for ASD, and conversion to a state charter school.

“The Clark County School District is acting in the best interest of our students by starting our School Review Process broadly with the schools that meet the criteria to be considered for conversion to a state charter school,” said Assistant Chief Student Achievement Officer Dr. Jeff Geihs. “This proactive approach will help all involved schools glean crucial information to improve student achievement.”

Members of the community and CCSD staff are encouraged to attend any of the sessions to learn about the process and obtain information about which schools may receive this designation. Informational sessions will take place as follows:
