    Storey County School District is pleased to announce that it has received several grants from the Nevada Department of Education totaling $258,515.73. Grants received include; Title IV, Dual Enrollment, STEM and Turnaround. Storey County School District is delighted that the Nevada Department of Education has awarded us these grants which will help our staff and students make a difference.

    The Dual Enrollment Grant will support Storey County School District in providing funds for students wishing to attend our JumpStart program through Western Nevada College. The Jumpstart program provides students the opportunity to enroll in college courses while simultaneously earning high school credits.

    The STEM Grant will provide training and supplies for Project Lead the Way (PLTW). PLTW empowers students to develop and apply in-demand, transportable skills by exploring real-world challenges.

    The Turnaround Grant will focus on building the Principal and site-based leadership teams’ ability to be instructionally- focused leaders who are able to improve results through setting instructional priorities and coaching/developing teachers to reach those priorities.

    The Title IV Grant will provide Storey County School District with a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Storey County is excited to be partnering with Community Chest on this endeavor.

    Grants in the amount of $158,000 were also received from the Nevada Department of Education in the Spring of 2017. These grants will provide Chromebooks (laptops) to every student in grades 6-12. Replacing textbooks, the Chromebooks are meant to enrich, customize and ease learning.

    Storey County School District was also granted the United We Stand Grant. We were fortunate enough to partner with Storey County and with the amazing support and guidance of Cherie Nevin and Dave Ballard all schools will soon have a single point of entry.

    These grants totaling over $446,000.00 is a huge contribution to the future of Storey County School District.
    Virginia City High Athletic Director, Patrick Beckwith, presents monies donated to Upper Lake High School on Saturday, August 25th. Money was raised during the game by our amazing VCHS fans and will be used to help a student from Upper Lake that was involved in a car accident for his medical needs. Way to show that Mucker pride!
