EDUCATION IN NEVADA IS IN CRISIS

Student achievement is our core business. The ultimate goal of iNVest is to improve academic achievement for all students. Prior to the 2003 session of the Nevada State Legislature, school superintendents and the boards of trustees from each of Nevada’s seventeen school districts joined together to develop a unified, long-term and strategic vision to improve public education for K-12 students throughout the state. Since its introduction three sessions ago, iNVest has maintained three foundational principles:
  • Education can be improved when adequate basic support is provided to districts;
  • Districts must have the resources to attract and retain qualified teachers; and
  • Districts must have the means to provide enhanced educational opportunities for students.
Adhering to these three fundamental principles will increase student achievement and provide meaningful accountability.







  On April 22, 2009, Paul Dugan, President of the Nevada Association of School Superintendents, and Irene Chachas, President of the Nevada Association of School Boards, gave a joint presentation before the Assembly Education Committee of the Nevada State Legislature, using the attached powerpoint presentation as the basis for their remarks.  For those interested in reading the comments they made, please view the powerpoint in the "Notes" version.  A similar presentation was made before the Senate Health and Education Committee on May 11.
