Welcome to Nye
Message from our Superintendent
Superintendent Dale A. Norton
Superintendent Dale A. Norton

I would like to personally welcome you and your family to the 2017-2018 school year. It is my privilege and honor to serve as Superintendent of Nye County School District (NCSD). I continue to have the passion and commitment to serve this organization, as well as the desire to continue to make a difference in Nye County School District.

Currently in my sixth year as the Superintendent of Schools, I remain as committed to the NCSD students as I was going into my first year. Together we will continue to move forward with every child in mind. Our goal is to provide excellent instruction to every student, in every classroom, every day.

The vision of the Nye County School District Board of Trustees is: Every Student a Success. Their mission is to educate students with the skills necessary to achieve their full potential. Their goals are as follows:

  • Elevate achievement for all students
  • Provide educational opportunities through graduation and beyond
  • Increase the graduation rate
  • Continuously incorporate technology to achieve our mission
  • Foster a safe and respectful learning and working environment
  • Promote parent involvement in pursuit of our vision

Please visit the Nye County School District’s Website (http://www.nye.k12.nv.us) where you will find an abundance of information including links to your child’s school and to our Facebook page.

Nye County School District moved to a new student information system last school year. The State Edition of Infinite Campus is a district-wide system designed to manage attendance, grades, schedules, assessments and other student information. Parents/legal guardians have on-line access to the Campus Portal, a confidential and secure website to view your child’s progress in school, attendance, lunch balance, etc. Ask for additional information at your child’s school regarding this portal and how to gain access.

On behalf of Nye County School District, the Board of Trustees, the leadership and administrative team, professional staff and support staff, I welcome you to join us in preparing your child for their future. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you at any time during the school year. If you would like to volunteer for Nye County School District, please contact our volunteer office.
