Starting a Petition
What is a petition?
A petition is a formal document signed by many people requesting a specific outcome.
What is a Parent Petition under Nevada State Law?
The Parent Petition is a way for parents and guardians with children at certain Rising Stars Schools that are not meeting Nevada State Standards to advocate for a change to improve their child’s school. Each petition must have a specific “School Plan.” Parents and guardians who are in favor of the School Plan can sign an official signature page to show their support for the plan.
Signature Pages for Parent Petition
Before you can begin collecting signatures for a petition you must first write a school plan. See the next section for information about writing a school plan.
