Meet Our Staff
Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!
Everyone is excited to begin a year where the focus is on a more personalized learning environment. The Board of Trustees and I are pleased to bring forward the Board Goals for the upcoming school year. These goals will be used as a foundation for educational excellence at Churchill County Schools.
Goal 1: Ensure excellence in instruction with high expectations for all students.
Goal 2: Implement a rigorous and relevant curriculum to meet the Nevada Academic Content Standards.
Goal 3: Utilize assessments and data to monitor and measure growth and achievement.
Goal 4: Maintain positive climate and culture providing safe, secure and nurturing learning environments.
Goal 5: Incorporate parent and community partnerships to maximize positive impact on student success.
Goal 6: The budget will be fiscally responsible in all matters and attempt to maximize each dollar for student success and district efficiency and transparency.
As you read through this publication, you will find that there are a variety of programs for all students, whether it is our Jump Start program for early college entrance at the high school, the Advanced Placement Courses, our Career and Technology Education (CTE) programs (which include IT Certifications, Welding Certifications, as well as additional certification opportunities in our Construction technology and other CTE program offerings), or online learning opportunities, students have the opportunity to select a learning option that fits their needs and future educational goals.
An exciting development for this year is our 1:1 Computing Initiative at Churchill County Middle and High School. This fall, after some initial training on the use and care of Chromebooks, students will be issued Chromebooks for instructional purposes. Through the use of CANVAS, an interactive instructional platform, teachers, students, and parents will be able to communicate, interact with their teachers regarding classroom assignments, and access online resources for personalized learning activities. It is an exciting time where students will not only be able to work on classroom assignments, but will also be able to access independent learning sites 24/7, exploring their interests, and increasing their academic skills.
Thank you for selecting Churchill County School District for your child's education. Our excellent teachers and staff are ready to partner with you and your child to provide a world class educational program.
