EDUCATION AND THE LEGISLATURE: BUILDING ON THE FOUNDATION
During the 2015 Nevada legislative session, Governor Brian Sandoval set out to enact a broad platform of educational reforms and funding priorities designed to improve student performance throughout Nevada. Nearly two dozen education-focused bills passed through the Legislature with broad bipartisan support, establishing a foundation for educational opportunity and success for current and future generations of Nevadans. In the 2017 session, the scope of education-related legislation was not as extensive as 2015, yet the collection of bills and budget funding passed by Governor Sandoval and legislators builds upon the foundation that was established two years ago. Below is a summary of key issues that were considered and laws that were passed during the 2017 legislative session.
