Protect Our Kids
The Clark County School District is entrusted with the most precious resource that exists, our community’s children. The vast majority of our employees and volunteers work hard every day to develop appropriate relationships with students.
However, we know that even one employee or volunteer who has an inappropriate communication or relationship with a student is too many. This website outlines recent changes made to protect our kids and to give families peace of mind.
This website also provides information regarding a new state that requires adults who volunteer at our schools or during school activities to be fingerprinted.
To report alleged abuse or misconduct, call CCSD Police at: 702-799-5411 or local law enforcement. Additionally, contact Child Protective Services at: 702-399-0081.
Volunteer fingerprinting process required under state law:
The 2019 Nevada Legislature passed Senate Bill 185, which makes it easier to volunteer at Clark County School District (CCSD) schools. The bill clarifies requirements for parents and members of the community to volunteer at schools. Click here to view details regarding SB 185.
The fingerprinting law modification will no longer require people who volunteer four or more times a month to go through the fingerprinting process, unless they will be left unsupervised with students.
Also, some volunteers, such as law enforcement officials, who are fingerprinted as part of their job can receive a waiver from having to be fingerprinted again.
This website will continue to be updated as needed as CCSD works to update its volunteer requirements to comply with SB 185 passed into law in June 2019.

Policy and Regulation 4100:
CCSD has also worked with employees, students, families and the community to develop guidelines and a regulation that outline appropriate relationships, interactions, and communications between district employees/volunteers and students.
A working group of employees, students, parents, and community members helped develop the draft of this regulation, which was then presented to a community roundtable for input on June 15, 2017. CCSD also gathered input via an online survey, and survey results can be seen below.
Guidelines for CCSD employees:
