Nevada Ed-Watch

Ang serye ng Ed-Watch ay idinisenyo upang madagdagan ang access sa impormasyon sa kung anong mga desisyon
ay ginagawa tungkol sa pampublikong edukasyon sa Clark County at Nevada.

Ano ang SPCSA at ano ang kanilang pananagutan? Itinuturing na isa sa mga distrito ng paaralan ng Nevada, ang SPCSA ay nagtataguyod at nangangasiwa sa mga pampublikong charter na paaralan. Ang Awtoridad ay binubuo ng pitong hinirang na miyembro na responsable sa pangangasiwa sa mga pamantayang pang-edukasyon at pagpapatakbo at pagpapanagot sa mga naka-sponsor na paaralan sa akademikong tagumpay ng mga mag-aaral. 

Gaano kadalas nagpupulong ang Lupon ng SPCSA? Ang SPCSA ay karaniwang nagpupulong minsan sa isang buwan, karaniwan tuwing Biyernes.

Maaari bang makisali ang mga miyembro ng komunidad sa SPCSA Board Meetings?

Maaaring magbigay ng pampublikong komento sa anumang agenda item sa simula ng pulong, o pampublikong komento tungkol sa anumang bagay na may kaugnayan sa SPCSA ay maaaring ibigay sa pagtatapos ng bawat pulong ng Lupon. Maaaring gamitin ng mga miyembro ng komunidad na nagbibigay ng pampublikong komento ang sumusunod na linya ng tawag sa kumperensya: 1-312-584-2401; extension 3952176# na may limitasyon sa oras na tatlong minuto bawat speaker.

Board Approved the Proposed Changes and Authorized Staff to Submit a Report, Pursuant to Executive Order 2023-003

SPCSA staff provided an overview of Executive Order 2023-003, which requires all state agencies (including SPCSA), to undertake a review of regulations subject to the state agency’s enforcement to determine how to streamline, clarify, reduce, or clarify those regulations. Ten regulations must be submitted to the Governor’s office for potential reduction by May 1.

Staff reviewed a redline version of the regulations that have been identified to eliminate, including several where the regulatory authority granted by the regulation is duplicative. Once submitted, the Governor’s office will provide feedback and there will be several opportunities for engagement via workshops, public comment, and other forums. 

Review the memo and the redline version of the regulations.
