Nevada School Climate/Social Emotional Learning Survey

ASPIRE students and families,

The American Institutes for Research (AIR) administers the Nevada School Climate/Social Emotional Learning (NV-SCSEL) survey on behalf of the Nevada Department of Education (NDE) to students in grades 5-12 across the state.

The goal of the NV-SCSEL survey is to better understand student learning conditions, social and emotional competencies, and factors affecting school climate in Nevada. To reach this goal, topics addressing students' perceptions of engagement and safety as well as items associated with social and emotional competence are measured.

ASPIRE Academy High School will be conducting the NV-SCSEL survey during the week of November 14-18th. 

If you DO NOT want your child to participate in the NV-SCSEL survey, please return the "opt out" form found on the link below to ASPIRE by no later than Wednesday, November 9th.  

If you would like to read the survey, there is a link to the survey below.

Enrollment Process
  • A student can be referred to ASPIRE by a counselor or administrator at his or her current school
  • A student or parent can seek enrollment to ASPIRE
  • A student can be referred to our Alternative School by the DCSD Board of Trustees if a student is expelled from his or her current school

Regardless of the referral, every student who is interested in attending AAHS must fill out a student application and attend a student/parent intake meeting to make sure that ASPIRE is the right fit. Our expectations for effort, behavior, and attendance are extremely high. Therefore, a commitment contract is required to be signed by both the student and the parent in order for a student to be enrolled.

ASPIRE does offer resources, services and support for students in need of special education although not every type of service on the continuum may be available at this site. Please be sure to call us if there are specific questions about an IEP or particular need.
