9/27/2022 Dear Parents/Guardians, During school year 2022-23, primarily between January and May of 2023, our students will be taking state mandated tests. You will likely hear your child(ren) using acronyms like MAP, WiDA, ACT, NAA, Science CRT, SBAC, NAEP, EOC and Civics. These are shortened forms of the names of the various assessments we use to collect data on student learning. The Nevada Department of Education uses information about college and career readiness from these exams to evaluate our schools and district. Our district also uses the data to inform the decisions that impact our future instruction. This letter is meant to fulfill the obligation from the Nevada Revised Statute (NRS 390.275), which requires each school to notify parents of these assessments. The Nye County School District has a “Test Administration & Security: Procedures and Professional Expectations Manual” that outlines the procedures and security we follow for testing. Because of the importance of the data from these assessments, students should know that if they are found guilty of cheating or of plagiarizing or of being in possession of prohibited electronic devices during the test administration, their scores will be invalidated and they are subject to school discipline. At the same time, students and parents who suspect an employee or school didn’t correctly follow the testing procedures should report those concerns to the school or district leaders for further investigation. We appreciate your support with this matter, and if you have any questions, please contact Pahrump Valley High School at 775-727-7737. Sincerely, Principal, Desiree Veloz

Today, February 3rd National Signing Day, we are celebrating two young women and one young man that are making commitments to post-secondary institutions. Probably the most important aspect of this is that, in the end, the ultimate goal is for these student-athletes to earn a college degree and set a career path that will benefit them for the rest of their life. For them to be recruited and have a college or university offer to help them get a college degree is an outstanding accomplishment. I am confident that each of these athletes realize the value of that opportunity and will continue to strive for success both on the athletic field and in the classroom. First, let us celebrate Jalen Denton. Jalen has participated in baseball, football, and soccer as a student-athlete at PVHS. Jalen has been a key member of league champion baseball teams during his freshman and sophomore years. Jalen has committed to play baseball at Williston State College, an NJCAA affiliate in Williston, North Dakota. The next athlete we will meet is Breanne Nygaard. Breanne has participated in golf and basketball during her time at PVHS. Breanne has led her golf team to two regional championships and state runner-up finishes, in addition to being the individual state runner-up last year. Breanne has committed to golf at the University of St. Thomas, an NCAA Division I program. Our final athlete this morning is Maddy Souza. Maddy has participated in basketball, soccer, and track and field at PVHS. Maddy has been a staple on league championship teams in basketball and soccer. Maddy is committing to play soccer at Casper College an NJCAA affiliate, in Casper, Wyoming.
