E-NDMS Over Capacity

Tags: 

Due to unusually high traffic, E-NDMS is struggling to keep up with demand.  Unfortunately, there's not much we can do on the administrative side other than ride out the storm.  If you don't absolutely need to be in the system this afternoon, it might be a good idea to wait until later this evening or tomorrow.  

Thank you for  your patience.

JAG Program Implemented In Nevada to Address High School Drop-Out Crisis

As Nevada continues to diversify our economy and get our fellow citizens back to work, we believe that the discussion about the outlook of Nevada’s future must begin with the state of our education system. The number of high school drop-outs in our state remains at staggering proportions and the unemployment rate for youth stands at 17.3 percent. We cannot continue to accept these sobering statistics. We must work to change the future – and we believe we have begun to do so for at-risk high school students.
