Distance Education option for 2021-2022 School Year. Please read carefully.
Online registration for Clark County School District (CCSD) students for the 2021-22 school year is now open. The school year will open with students attending full-time face-to-face five days a week at all schools. Families who wish to continue with distance education will need to opt-in for distance education. The deadline to opt-in for full-time distance education is May 21, 2021, to allow schools time to plan staffing for the upcoming school year. Late requests for full-time distance education will be based on available space at each school.
Before opting in to full-distance education, parents and guardians are asked to carefully review the distance education information provided during the registration process. These materials are also available for review online by clicking here.
Students opting in to full-time distance education will be expected to meet the following expectations:
- Students will be required to attend and have their cameras on for the full duration of real-time sessions during the school’s instructional day. Students may use the blurred background function.
- Middle and High School will have a minimum of 60-90 minutes of real-time sessions per week per course.
- Students will be required to attend school face-to-face for designated activities and assessments. District transportation will not be provided for these activities.
All full-time distance education requests are subject to approval by the school principal.
Parents/guardians are asked to consider the following information when selecting full-time distance education:
- Students may be required to remain in full-time distance education for the entire academic school year.
- If a full-time distance education student begins to struggle, intervention meetings may be conducted with the student and parent/guardian, and the student may be required to attend school for face-to-face instruction.
- Students participating in full-time distance education may be required to participate in curricular instructional activities at the school campus (i.e., tutoring, projects, and performances). Students will be required to attend school face-to-face for designated assessments. District transportation will not be provided for these activities.
- Students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) may need to attend therapy and related services at the school.
- Only students may participate in the real-time sessions. If a parent/guardian has a question or needs assistance, please email the teacher outside of class or contact the counselor to arrange a parent-teacher conference.
- Based on teacher licensure requirements, classroom capacity, and students served through the different instructional models, there will be limitations for parents/guardians to change their student(s) to a different instructional model once selected.
- A student participating in full-time distance education who qualifies for free and reduced lunch, may receive meals at the school at no cost. The student must eat their meals at the school during the school’s designated meal serving times per the National School Lunch Program.

- Some courses/classes may not be offered through full-time distance education.
