Welcome to Nye County School District
It is my honor and privilege to serve as the new Superintendent of Nye County School District. I would like to personally welcome you and your family to the 2020-2021 school year. I am looking forward to working with the Board of Trustees and supporting their vision of "every student a success," their mission to "empower students to learn at their highest level in an environment of mutual respect," and their goals to:
- Embrace a culture of learning for all
- Elevate achievement for all students
- Provide educational opportunities to support lifelong learning
- Promote ongoing family engagement in pursuit of our vision
- Increase the graduation rate
- Foster a safe and respectful learning and working environment
- Adapt and integrate technology to achieve our mission
To fully support the board, my goal is to build a strong, psychologically safe culture. One where students feel safe, and teachers, staff, and administrators can say they love their jobs, feel valued and respected, and enjoy working hard to reach their goals, always putting students first and believing every child deserves a great education and can thrive with the right resources and supports. My personal motto of “Empower to Excel” is due to believing a great district gives each and every child the tools to reach their own potential and goals. I want all students to have the skill set to apply and do whatever their heart desires whether it is to go to the local community college or to Harvard.
I am looking forward to implementing year two of the district’s strategic plan and focusing our actions on continuous improvement: Destination 2025: “95 by ’25,” I.G.R.A.D.E.S. The strategic plan documents are located on the district website (http://www.nye.k12.nv.us) where you will find an abundance of information, including links to your child’s school and the District’s Facebook page.
The State Edition of Infinite Campus is a district-wide system designed to manage attendance, grades, schedules, assessments, and other student information.Parents/legal guardians have on-line access to Campus Parent, a confidential and secure website to view your child’s progress in school, attendance, lunch balance, etc. Students have access to Campus Student. The functionality, URL, and portal login will remain the same. If you require assistance, please ask for additional information at your child’s school.
On behalf of Nye County SchoolDistrict, Board of Trustees, the leadership and administrative team, professional staff, and support staff, I welcome you to join us in preparing your child for their future. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you at any time during the school year. If you would like to volunteer for NCSD, please contact our volunteer office.
