Augenblick, Palaich and Associates (APA), a consulting firm for the Department of Education, has been authorized and is conducting a school finance study on behalf of the state of Nevada that includes identifying the resources needed to serve at-risk students, English language learners and special education students throughout Nevada.

“It is expected that incorporating a strong Nevada perspective is essential to the study, and the feedback incorporated from the study will produce final recommendations for improvements to the State's educational funding system,” said Richard Stokes, superintendent for the Carson City School District. “The study is expected to gather feedback on the current education finance system, including the system’s strengths and weaknesses and thoughts on how the finance system could be revised to best address the needs of students, schools and districts.”

An online survey is open from July 9 through July 22 to gather feedback from educators, parents and community members. You may access the survey by clicking here. Your feedback is valuable, and the Carson City School District hopes that you will take a few moments to participate in the online survey. Thank you for your time and participation in this important work.
