Multicultural Task Force


In 2015, Assembly Bill 234 established the K-12 Academic Content Standards, which required that educators complete a multicultural education course prior to their initial licensing. Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 389.520 further requires that the standards for social studies include multicultural education, including information related to the contributions made by men and women from various racial and ethnic backgrounds.

The mission of the Multicultural Education Task Force is to ensure that students receive educational equity by promoting the development of inclusive and responsive instructional practices while respecting and appreciating the cultural diversity throughout Nevada.


  • Examine current culturally inclusive teaching practices in Nevada
  • Build educator capacity to increase culturally inclusive and multicultural education principles into curriculum and classroom environments
  • Provide professional learning resources on cross curricular culturally inclusiveness and multicultural education principles within the statewide learning management system (LMS)
  • Develop a rubric to review resources to ensure alignment to the Nevada Academic Content Standards and support implementation of the multicultural standards in social studies and cross curricular
  • Curate resources and instructional materials for recommend use in all K-12 classrooms
