District and Charter Reopening Plan Guidance


2021-2022 School Year

For the 2021-22 School Year, the Nevada Department of Education issued Guidance Memorandum 21-02, detailing guidance for 2021-22 School Year Reopening Plans in alignment with Emergency Directive 044.  

    2020-2021 School Year

    For the 2020-21 School Year, the Nevada Department of Education developed the Path Forward Plan, leading to a Statewide Reopening of Schools Committee which went on to develop Nevada’s Path Forward: A Framework for a Safe, Efficient, and Equitable Return to School Buildings. Emergency Directive 022 required that school districts and charter schools develop plans for reopening school buildings and providing instruction based on the Framework and subsequent guidance from the Department. The Department then released Guidance Memorandum 20-05, detailing guidance for Path Forward Programs of Distance Education. Schools and districts subsequently developed reopening plans and submitted them for approval to their board of trustees and/or charter sponsor no fewer than 20 days before the first day of the 2020-21 school year. Significant additional guidance was provided throughout the course of the school year related to numerous policies and procedures and may be found on our COVID-19 page. 

      2019-2020 School Year

      On March 15, 2020 of the 2019-2020 School Year, Emergency Directive 001 was issued, closing all K-12 schools due to the emerging COVID-19 crisis. Emergency Directive 005 required the Department to provide guidance and minimum requirements regarding Emergency Programs of Distance Education, as school building closures were extended (in Directives 005, 014, and 015). Significant additional guidance was provided throughout the course of the school year related to numerous policies and procedures and may be found on our COVID-19 page.
