Nevada 2016 State Policy Detail
FOCUS ON PRACTICES TO BUILD ON MODEL POLICIES
With a perfect state policy score, Nevada seeks to improve its charter schools through strong practices led by committed professionals.
- Nevada has adopted all of NACSA’s recommended policies.
- Consider providing the Nevada State Public Charter School Authority with additional budget autonomy, especially as implementation of new policies continues. The Authority is officially designated as an LEA in statute and, as such, has specific categorical budget constraints that are unusual for a dedicated statewide authorizer. This creates constraints that can limit the Authority’s ability to staff appropriately for authorizer-specific tasks and to fulfill its statutory role as a model authorizer.
