Council to Establish Academic Standards

The Nevada legislature passed major education reform legislation during its 1997 and 1999 sessions. A major emphasis of this legislation was to create standards to help improve the academic achievement of Nevada's students. To accomplish this goal the Nevada Council to Establish Academic Standards for Public Schools was established. This Council was charged with establishing high, measurable standards in English language arts, mathematics, and science. They were similarly charged with establishing standards in social studies, computer and technology education, health and physical education, and the arts no later than January 15, 2000. The members of this Council have devoted countless hours in order to provide the best possible framework for Nevada's children. See the results of their efforts in the Standards section of this website.
