Board Approved Vision Statement and Goals Aligned to Silver State Governance

The Board approved a new organizational vision statement: All Nevada students are equipped and feel empowered to attain their vision of success.

The Board will continue their work regarding the development of goals to monitor student outcomes as outlined by Silver State Governance. As part of this work, the SBOE has attended Silver State governance training and conducted a self-assessment in order to grow in student focused governance and create goals to monitor student outcomes.

The board also approved two final goals and discussed one proposed goal aligned to these outcomes:  

  • Approved Goals
    • The Nevada Education System will move up in state rankings from 18th as of September 2020 to Top 10 by July 2026 as measured by the academic portions of the Quality Counts K-12 student achievement data.
    • Increase the overall number of students receiving their CCR diploma from 23.9% on July 31, 2021 to 50% on July 31, 2026 and eliminate gaps of student subgroups while raising the overall average. 
  • Proposed Goal
    • Improve statewide culture and climate survey from the statewide score of 365 on July 31, 2020 to Y on July 31, 2026. This goal is on hold until the SBOE can receive a presentation with accurate data  

Throughout the goal development process, the SBOE discussed appropriate language for each goal, what goal benchmarks should be set in regards to the state’s ranking and diploma attainment, and their concerns for goal success based on varying statewide and region-specific factors. 

After approving the vision statement and two goals, the SBOE discussed guardrails for the two approved goals. Guardrails are “thou shalt not” phrases, the bumpers that will keep the board in line. 


  • The State Superintendent will not propose major decisions that pertain to these goals to the Board without first having engaged students, families, and staff. 
  • We will not negatively impact student achievement of any student subgroup based on these goals. 
    • The above guardrails were not voted on, but they were decided as being the main guardrails as of now. The board wanted to pass them on to the State Superintendent for review and discussion. 

Other considered guardrails: 

  • We will not overinflate star ratings over individual student outcomes. 
  • We will not move from a standard diploma without the rigor of the coursework to achieve the CCR diploma. 
  • We will not allow our overall graduation rate to drop. 
  • We will not narrow the breadth and rigor of curriculum being taught. 
  • We will not consider the results of student data without also considering their social emotional and mental health of the students and staff. 
  • We will not allow academic gaps between subgroups. 

The State Superintendent and staff will come back with their thoughts and review on the approved goals. The SBOE will then finalize their third goal, guardrails, and decide on interim goals.

Trustees Heard Update on the Plan for Path Forward Program of Distance Education and Plan for the Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services

American Rescue Plan (ARP) ESSER requires districts to clarify how local education agencies (LEAs) must meet the statutory requirements to create a plan to safely reopen schools and how SEAs work with LEAs to develop these plans. In accordance with Directive 044, CCSD (an LEA) is required to submit a plan for the safe return to in-person instruction and continuity of services to the Nevada Department of Education (an SEA) by July 14, 2021.By September 10, 2021, CCSD is also required to submit the District’s ARP ESSER Funding Plan.

Highlights of the Plan for Path Forward Program of Distance Education:

  • For the 2021-22 school year, CCSD will be offering three separate learning models to parents/guardians:
    • Full-time face-to-face instruction at every school, with the exception of Nevada Learning Academy which is a virtual school.
    • Full-time distance education at any school with enough participation for the principal to staff the program, and available to all students at Nevada Learning Academy.
    • Hybrid instruction (on a limited basis).
  • All students will be issued a District-owned device, and the District will subsidize Internet connections for eligible families.
  • CCSD will prepare all educators to effectively provide instruction focused on teaching content and language simultaneously during distance education for ELLs.
  • CCSD will provide special education and related services in accordance with each student’s IEP as well as technical assistance to educators to meet the diverse needs of identified students.
  • Students participating in full-time distance education that qualify for FRL may receive meals at school at no cost.

Highlights of the Plan for the Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services:

  • Masks are required indoors for staff who are not fully vaccinated, students in Grades 4 and 5, and on school buses. Masks are optional for students in Grades 6 through 12 who have been fully vaccinated.
  • CCSD is partnering with community leaders on the Focus on the Future for Kids Community Input Initiative. The first step is to gather community input on the ARP ESSER federal funds provided to CCSD. Input received will provide a community-informed, kids-first agenda to allocate CCSD’s federal funds and other future community investments. The initiative will also establish a new approach to collecting community input and prioritizing the integration of community voices into CCSD’s planning. This process will allow CCSD to prepare and post on the District’s website any revisions to the plan as required by the guidance. Updates will be provided by no later than December 15, 2021, July 15, 2022, December 15, 2022, and July 15, 2023.

Current Registration for the 2021-22 School Year:

  • 95% of currently registered students (or 221,405 students) are registered for face-to-face instruction. The remaining 5% (or 11,853 students) are registered for full-time distance education.
  • The number of registered students is currently trending up by nearly 35,000 over this time last year. A registration influx is anticipated in July and August.
