November 2016 Superintendent's Update : Superintendents's Blog
Esmeralda County School District

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 eighty 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”.

November 2016 Superintendent's Update

by Rodriguez Broadnax on 11/14/16

Good Evening Team,

I hope your week is off to a great start. This email is sent as a short update from the Office of the Superintendent.

I would like to thank those of you who attended our second Teacher/Staff Retreat held this past weekend in Carson City. I would also like to thank all of our teachers whom presented great instructional strategies and ideas to the staff. You did a great job and I am very proud to be part of this team. Keep up the great work! I thank you for your attention, collaboration and participation with our guest speakers. They really enjoyed you.

As a reminder, I will be out of the office for the next couple of days and return for most of the day on Wednesday. We will be having the Cabinet Meeting Wednesday afternoon in Dyer. If there is an item you would like placed on the agenda and discussed by the Administrative Cabinet, please email me by 12 Noon Tuesday, November 15, 2016, as I will be working on the agenda thereafter. After the Cabinet Meeting, I will be departing with the School Board to Reno to attend the Nevada Association of School Board Conference the reminder of the week. As usual, Mr. Scates will be in charge of the district. If there is something that comes up, please see or call him and he will notify me.

The November School Board Meeting time, date and location has changed. The prior date was November 8, 2016 at 6PM in Dyer; however, the meeting will be held in Goldfield at the Annex Building on November 22, 2016 @ 3PM due to the District’s Thanksgiving Luncheon being held in the Goldfield Gymnasium at 12:10PM. 

Finally, it is with a heavy heart and sadness that I announce the passing of our District Secretary Melinda Melendrez’s father, Mr. Rich. He was a great man and a huge advocate for our school district. He will truly be missed but never forgotten. Please keep Melinda, her mother Joan, Paul and the rest of the family in your thoughts and prayers. Once funeral arrangements are made, I will announce them to the staff.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact my office.

As always, thank you for all you do!

Have a safe and restful evening!


All the Best,
Rodriguez F. Broadnax, Ed.S.
Superintendent of Schools
