DISTRICT SAYS PARENT INVOLVEMENT A MUST IN NEW STANDARDS ROLLOUT
WINNEMUCCA, Nev.— School district officials say they will need every parent’s support to effectively roll out new state standards that begin to take effect this year.
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) initiative is a voluntary, state-led effort to establish a shared set of clear, educational standards for English language arts and mathematics.
The Nevada State Board of Education joined over 40 other states in October 2010 by adopting the new standards.
Humboldt County School District Superintendent Dave Jensen said that bonding together by a majority of states makes this a landmark time in education.MORE

SUPERINTENDENT HONES FOCUS ON EDUCATIONAL CORE VALUES, BELIEFS
WINNEMUCCA, Nev.— Dr. David Jensen says the business of education always seems to be changing.

“Too often that statement has been accurate,” said Dr. Jensen, “despite the fact that many other initiatives and expectations have become an everyday part of public education.”
With so many forces pulling education in one direction and pushing it in others, Dr. Jensen said he felt it was time to simply remind the Humboldt County School District of some basic educational core values and beliefs that will never change. MORE
