Education Reform Blue Ribbon Task Force Launches Nevada’s Promise Website and Facebook

September 16, 2010

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ — Today the Education Reform Blue Ribbon Task Force launches the Nevada’s Promise website at www.nevadaspromise.org to educate Nevadans about the proposed solution to the massive yet solvable education crisis facing the state. The site contains an outline of the education challenges facing Nevada–including the lowest high school graduation rate in the nation–as well as comprehensive and bold solutions proposed by Nevada’s Promise.

Nevada’s Promise began as the state’s application for federal Race to the Top grant funds and has become the blueprint for education reform in Nevada. This reform agenda represents the first truly tough-minded, bold approach to changing the way we do business in education in Nevada. A complete copy of the document can be found on the website along with an abstract, executive summary and PowerPoint presentation.

News from the task force, education successes in the news and progress updates will also be available on the site as well as background materials and official biographies. Public dialogue will also be encouraged through the group’s Facebook page (link available at www.nevadaspromise.org).

The task force will hold an open meeting September 20 at Valley High School to continue work on implementing Nevada’s Promise and recommending long-term education reform measures. News briefs on the presentations will be posted at www.nevadaspromise.org following each meeting.

The reform agenda is available at www.nevadaspromise.org.
