Nevada Reads Literacy Initiative


In recognition of Nevada's Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of Nevada's admission to the Union, on Thursday, October 31, 2013,  the Nevada Department of Education kicked off a year-long celebration of literacy entitled "Nevada Reads: Celebrating Literacy in 150 Schools."

Throughout Nevada's 150 celebration year, Governor Sandoval and Superintendent Erquiaga, along with members of the Governor's Cabinet and other key members of the Governor's Administration, will honor the legacy of literacy by visiting 150 schools across the state. Each of these individuals will become models of literacy to Nevada's students by providing a powerful read-aloud experience. Each Nevada Reads  book read in a classroom has been written by a Nevada author.
