The CCSD Community Engagement team seeks to engage with our community and build connections with external partners to increase opportunities and resources for our students, staff, and schools, while supporting the goals of the District’s Strategic Plan.
Become a partner and have a lasting impact on Clark County School District (CCSD) students and staff by connecting schools with needed resources. Your contributions are essential to student achievement and teacher success. Your support will enable all students to have a richer scholastic experience.
Serve as an example to middle school and alternative high school students through the Professionals and Youth Building A Commitment (PAYBAC) Program. You and your experiences can serve as an example and inspiration to students, encouraging them to continue their education, set goals, and make plans for the future despite adversities. Interested speakers can expect to speak for 45 minutes to a group of35 students. *Interested volunteers should be at least 25 years of age or may be younger if currently enrolled as a college student or employed.
The Stay in School Mentoring Project matches volunteers from the community across a broad spectrum of professions with students that need guidance and support to help them be successful in school. Mentors will meet with their matched CCSD student in person throughout the year to provide positive guidance, support, and encouragement.
The Focus School Project, CCSD’s adopt-a-school program, partners businesses, organizations, agencies, and individuals with schools to bring needed resources to students. Participants work with school administrators and staff to assist in increasing academic achievement and engagement while decreasing chronic absenteeism.
The Community Engagement team facilitates numerous curriculum-based field trips, program opportunities, and contests throughout the year that connect business and community resources with schools to enrich the educational experiences for CCSD students. Curriculum-based opportunities include science, art, literacy, social studies programs, and more sponsored by various partners. These programs actively engage students and enhance classroom education.
