Turnaround Grant (b)


Maria Sauter


In 2015, Nevada State Legislature passed SB 515, Sec. 24 that authorized the Nevada Department of Education (NDE) to offer 1-and 2-Star rated schools, according to the state school accountability system, funding to assist in implementing a school improvement plan. This allows NDE to establish a partnership with school leadership for the purpose of closing the achievement gap for the identified subpopulations and increasing student achievement in all identified schools.  

This funding source is to be used to leverage change and dramatically improve student achievement in the identified 1- and 2-Star schools by making targeted investments in the areas aligned to Nevada’s Theory of Action and Strategy for Underperforming Schools: Turnaround Strategy and Process.
