General Comments: 

Summer School has had the largest attendance in memory, with students turning out in large numbers to participate in the Summer STEM Camp. The entire district (summer school students) met at the Silver Peak swimming pool for the first ever summer school district event. What a great way to stay cool! 

PLC/Safety Committee: 

The new EOP is out with changes, updates, and a School Board review coming up in the June board meeting. The ALT team has put in an exceptional amount of time this summer working on grants, leadership academy collaboration, and putting on summer school.  

District Facilities and Bus Update: 

EsCSD maintenance and transportation team has been working hard all summer to make sure buses, buildings, and grounds are ship shape and ready for the 2024-2025 school year. 

Thank you EsCSD maintenance and transportation team!


On July 30th - 3rd a select team will be attending the kick-off of the NDE Future of Learning Convening in Ely, Nevada. The work being undertaken has the potential to affect education in Nevada for decades to come!
