Initial Variance Application
Variances are granted on a case-by-case basis by the principal. Minimum requirements must be met:
-Minimum 2.0 GPA
-Minimal to no negative behavior
-First time applicant variances must be signed by the zoned school principal
Variance forms for students who reside within the Washoe County School District can be found here:

*Please note that if your student is coming from outside of the WCSD, you must bring verification of grades, attendance, and behavior from the current or previous school. We will not be able to request that information for you.
Standard and out-of-district variances need to be renewed each scholastic year. It is not necessary for the zoned school principal to sign for a renewed variance. Once the renewed variance is filled out, signed, and turned in to the registrar, your student is approved unless you are contacted and notified otherwise.
These variances are granted through the CTE Academy. To apply for one of the academies at Reed High School, you must apply online. For more information and a link to the application, please click here:
