Superintendent’s Task Force

  • The Washoe County School District is seeking applicants to serve on the Superintendent’s Task Force, which will consider the selection of supplementary curriculum materials.

    The WCSD Board of Trustees directed the Superintendent to convene a Task Force to provide input on the selection of supplementary curriculum materials based on the Nevada Academic Content Standards (NVACS). Supplementary materials are meant to expand and enhance the content curriculum and do not replace the NVACS.

    The goal of the Task Force is to make and share recommendations to the Superintendent regarding supplementary curriculum materials that best serve the interest of all WCSD students, employees, and community members.

     

    To be part of the Task Force, individuals need to apply by the submission deadline of August 27, 2021, at 5:00 p.m.

    The Task Force will include 18 representatives as follows:

    • five (5) individuals representing parents/guardians for elementary school children in each of the five Trustee regular districts,
    • four (4) teachers,
    • one (1) school site administrator,
    • two (2) District administrative directors,
    • two (2) students, and
    • four (4) community members.
