Department Information
District Resources

We are without doubt the smallest school district in Nevada and yet we are blessed with over 3,570 square miles of mountainous high-desert landscape. With only seventy elementary students in three locations, we offer a personal touch to education unmatched in the lower “forty-eight” states. Even though we live in a remote area, few schools in the Nation can equal Esmeralda’s use of classroom technology.

Take a moment to travel through our website and get a flavor of what we have to offer our young people. Esmeralda County School District truly is “Where Education Meets the Frontier”.

Come and Join us at Goldfield Elementary School Parent Engagement Night

by Rodriguez Broadnax on 08/24/15

Parent Engagement Night

Dear Parent or Guardian,

          On September 1, 2015 Goldfield Elementary School will be hosting our first family engagement night of the school year. We would like to formally invite any parents or community members to attend. You will have a unique opportunity to get a glimpse into the progress that our students have been making in English language arts, mathematics, and science, and the educational goals that Goldfield Elementary will strive to meet this school year. There will be hot dogs and drinks for all those attending the events. Please make sure to ask to sign in upon your arrival. In addition, our eight grade class will have a bake sale during the event, so if you wish to support our middle school students in their endeavors to raise money for an end-of-the-year eighth grade school field trip, please brings cash and enjoy some of their delicious home-baked goods! The open house will begin at 5:30PM where you will have the opportunity to meet and greet with each teacher privately in their classroom. The main event will begin at 6:00PM in the gym. Please see the attached agenda for a listing of what will transpire at this time. We look forward to seeing you all!

Respectfully,

Mr. Khalevskyy

Lead Teacher

Dear Esmeralda County Families,

Welcome back to the 2015 – 2016 school year! It is hard to believe the summer is over. It is my expressed hope that you have had a restful and enjoyable summer and now ready for an exciting, challenging, and successful school year.

I am humbled and proud to have been appointed interim superintendent of Esmeralda County Schools by the Board of Trustees. As your educational partner, I have an “Open Door” policy which will allow all stakeholders to share any concerns or positive actions or feedback with the superintendent. My leadership style is approachable, collaborative, inclusive and transparent. I have already implemented a decentralized decision making approach throughout the district to ensure collaboration between all district schools and communities.

Finally, we have completed the first week of school. I have visited all schools and met all students, staff and most parents in all three communities. I am pleased with the dedication, focus, and drive for student achievement and success in which I have observed throughout the district.  This dedication and focus to student achievement alludes to my educational slogan “Students First.”  I am “Students First” and student – centered.

As a community, let’s continue work collaboratively to ensure all of the students of Esmeralda County receive the quality education they deserve, so they are able to compete and become productive citizens in a global competitive society. Please visit our new district Facebook Page at Esmeralda County School District to stay current with upcoming events and all of the great things happening throughout our district. We have also implemented the “Superintendent’s Blog” which may be found on the front page of the districts’ website at www.esmeraldacountyschools.com.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. You may contact me via email at rbroadnax@esmeralda.k12.nv.us or at the district office at 775.485.6382.

Yours in Education,
Rodriguez F. Broadnax, Ed.S.
Interim Superintendent of Schools
Esmeralda County School District
