Student Awarded Outstanding Entry for Asian-American History, Junior Division

Katelyn progressed through local, state, and national National History Day presentations to be awarded as an Outstanding Entry for Asian-American History in the Junior Division for her website entitled, "The Death of Vincent Chin: Tension between Asian and American Autoworkers."

I want to be a kindergarten teacher. I love to work with kids and since I’m a people person ... I’d like to do something exciting and help build kids’ education.

LAUNCH Student puts on K-12 STEM Fair

Nevada High School’s LAUNCH program has opened its students to all types of learning opportunities. Senior Madeleine H. culminated her LAUNCH term by putting on a STEM Fair at the Nevada High School.

The mission of LAUNCH is to allow students to earn credits toward graduation by working on studies or projects that they are passionate about. For Madeleine, her focus was STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

STEM Fair is the culmination of one Nevada student’s Launch work

I’ve always been interested in STEM, and there wasn’t really anything like this in Nevada . I'd seen this type of event in Ames and wanted to bring some of the amazing things that can be learned through STEM applications to other kids in Nevada.

Personalized Professional Development

The Nevada School District believes in learning at all levels, from students to staff.

As the education world has promoted voice and choice for students Nevada is also offering this to its staff when it comes to professional development.

Effective professional development honors the autonomy of teachers but recognizes the importance of a form of accountability grounded in that autonomy. Both are essential.

Jim Knight, Director of the Kansas Coaching Project & Author
