Parent and guardian Elections

How to Form SOTs_Segment 4_Parent.mp4

Parents and legal guardians are eligible to be members of the SOT at the schools where their children are currently enrolled.

CCSD employees cannot serve as the parent/guardian members of the SOT if their child attends the school at which they work. However, those employees may serve as a licensed or support staff member of the SOT at that school. CCSD employees may also serve as a parent/guardian member of a SOT if their child attends a school different from their work location.

According to state law, if a parent organization (PTA) currently exists at a school, they will establish and run the election process for parents. For schools without a parent organization, the school principal will run the election process.

Process for Schools with a Current PTA

  • The school PTA will send out nomination form for parents/legal guardians. Parents can nominate themselves or another parent/guardian at the school.
  • A ballot will be created based on the nominations received.
  • Elections will take place during a meeting at the school (date and time TBD by each school's PTA and principal).
  • All parents, regardless of PTA membership, can vote for their representatives on the SOT.
  • Contact Nevada PTA at 702-258-7885 or office@nevadapta.org with questions.

Sample letters (in English and Spanish) have been provided for schools with current PTAs to send home informing parents about the election process at their school.

These documents have spaces for schools to insert information specific to their school.
