On January 31, 2020 the Nevada State Public Charter School Authority voted to close the Nevada Connections Academy at the end of the 2019-2020 school year. This school has provided a safe haven for hundreds of children who haven’t received what they needed from traditional brick and mortar schools. When traditional schools failed to provide adequate education to meet unique learning challenges or intervene when bullying threatened student safety, NCA has given parents the options they needed. Many students have come to NCA deficient in basic educational credits that have been reflected in poor testing scores. However, despite the deficiencies, NCA has worked hard to help these students to fill in the gaps in their education so that they can each graduate on time. NCA and the families it serves knows that the success of its students cannot be measured in a simple “star rating” system alone. This is why NCA has continuously labored to meet the graduation benchmarks previously laid out by the SPSCA, and they have met those and continue to strive to do more and better things for their students. The NCA staff cares about their students. This school is the only option for many, many students and their families when all other schools have turned them away. Please sign this petition to keep Nevada Connections Academy open.
