As part of the Remote Learning or at-home lesson plans, the Carson City School District has made a number of resources available on the carsoncityschools.com website. A Remote Learning Page has been created to provide parents and students with weekly materials for elementary students. All secondary students (middle and high school students) will receive instruction from their teachers using Google Classroom. Teachers will also make arrangements for copies to be printed and available for pick up in school offices for families who may not have the ability to remotely print them from home.

Curriculum Information

The Nevada Council to Establish Academic Standards for Public Schools was charged with establishing high, measurable standards in English language arts, mathematics, and science. They were similarly charged with establishing standards in social studies, computer and technology education, health and physical education, and the arts.

The Carson City School District has worked to incorporate the State Standards into grade level Curriculum Maps/Pacing Guides for each subject area.  Teachers utilize these maps to guide their instruction throughout the curriculum.
