The Nevada Department of Education (NDE) prioritizes enhancing student achievement by bolstering language and literacy outcomes for all students. This commitment is reflected in the adoption of several key initiatives: the Nevada Academic Content Standards for English Language Arts (ELA), aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the Nevada Multi-Tiered System of Support Core-Elements, and Nevada's Read by Grade 3 Act (AB 289). These comprehensive strategies work in concert to ensure that all Nevada students graduate with the essential literacy skills necessary to thrive in a globalized world, pursue their aspirations, and make meaningful contributions to both Nevada and the broader community.
