Carson City Schools First Day of the School Year Launches August 15th

With the first day of school (K-12) fast approaching, Monday, August 15, Carson City School District wants all students and parents to be aware of some important back-to-school information that will impact students and families.

New Bus Routes and Extended Walking Zones
Due to recent, increasing bus driver shortages, the Carson City School District is modifying the walking zones for all high school and middle school students from 2 miles to 2.5 miles for the 2022-2023 school year. Additionally, some bus routes have been consolidated for elementary, middle and high school routes.

If your student(s) have previously ridden the bus, please click on this link to see the updated bus schedules. You should be able to locate bus stops closest to your home based on your child’s designated school. Where possible, parents and families are encouraged to transport their students to and from school.

We appreciate your continued patience and understanding as we implement these changes. Those interested in applying to become a bus driver and receive a $2,000 hiring bonus are invited to contact Human Resources, (775) 283-2130.

Meningococcal and Tdap Vaccinations
All current 12th graders (seniors) attending any Nevada public, private or charter school for the 2022-2023 school year, must have a second dose of the MCV4 (meningococcal) vaccine and all 7th graders must have their first dose of MCV4 and Tdap prior to the start of the school year, Monday, August 15, 2022.

There is a regional shortage for both vaccines, but Nevada Health Centers does have MCV4 and Tdap doses available and is working diligently to immunize as many students as possible within the next week. We have also been made aware that many local pharmacies like Save Mart, CVS or Walgreens may have additional supplies. If you have not already, please make an appointment.

As such, if you or your student is not immunized prior to the first day of school, they will be “conditionally enrolled,” and will be notified (by phone and mail) when additional supplies become available.

For more information or questions, please contact Sheila Story, chief nurse, 775-283-1675 or sstory@carson.k12.nv.us.

Volunteer Application Portal Now Open
The online volunteer application portal for new and returning volunteers is now available!

The Carson City School District is using Raptor as its volunteer management system, which will simplify and standardize parent and volunteer engagement across the district. Parents and families are encouraged to complete applications and get approval as soon as possible, so they may be ready to volunteer when opportunities arise and the district can easily communicate with them.

Money again flows to help push economic development in the Silver State

Governor Steve Sisolak
Outlining growth potential coming up soon….

CARSON CITY — Nevada was awarded more than $14 million Wednesday to help more Nevadans reach their full potential and secure good-paying jobs that are vital to building competitive economies and a thriving middle class.

Nevadaworks, Northern Nevada’s hub for job seekers, was awarded a $14,895,601 grant by the U.S. Economic Development Administration within the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Nevadaworks is one of 32 grant recipients across the country as part of the EDA’s $500 million Good Jobs Challenge, aimed at supporting equitable pathways to quality jobs across the country.

The grant for Nevadaworks is expected to support job placement for 648 jobs with a focus on healthcare, information technology, manufacturing, and the transportation, distribution and logistics industries.

“As our economy continues to grow to new heights, we need to ensure that our State prioritizes opportunities for underserved communities and supports organizations doing on-the-ground work to get Nevadans into good-paying jobs,” said Governor Steve Sisolak. “I’m grateful to the Economic Development Administration for recognizing the hard work being put in by Nevadaworks to connect our rural and indigenous communities to lucrative jobs and industries.”

“We appreciate the support from the Economic Development Administration and the State so we can continue our critically important work on behalf of those living and working in Northern Nevada,” said Milt Stewart, the Chief Executive Officer of Nevadaworks. “We want to make sure individuals trying to join the workforce — or trying to advance in their careers — have every opportunity to do so. That helps us bring a more prepared workforce to
Northern Nevada.”

The Good Jobs Challenge awarded grants to awardees providing tangible opportunity and security for American workers, particularly women, people of color and workers from historically underserved communities — as well as connecting employers with the trained workforce they need to grow and remain competitive.

Nevadaworks is the Northern Nevada local workforce development board and receives funding from the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) through Title I Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) subgrants from the Department of Labor to service the Adult, Dislocated Workers and Youth.

The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) wrote a letter of support for the organization for this grant opportunity as did the Governor’s Office of Workforce Innovation (GOWINN), the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE), the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DWSS), and the Western Nevada Development District.

Nevadaworks is building a regional workforce system to place workers into jobs across four key industry sectors – manufacturing, healthcare services, information technology and transportation/logistics. The Northern Nevada Equity in Employment Project includes four backbone organizations: Nevada Industry Excellence (manufacturing backbone, a Manufacturing Extension Partnership center), Nevada Hospital Association (healthcare), the Economic Development Authority for Western Nevada (information technology) and Truckee Meadows Community College (transportation/logistics).

Finally – We’re catching up…

New Housing will soon be growing rather fast off Butti Way – New low income apartments are on the horizon!

During a Supervisors meeting Thursday, Supervisors learned low income families just might “get a move-in” with 81 unit affordable apartments looming on the horizon – right on Butti Way ON CITY OWNED PROPERTY.  

Supervisors are approving an agreement that will lead the city to chip in some money of its own and combine it with developers and other sources.  A separate development agreement, passed in 2021, stipulated that the city-owned land will be conveyed to Oikos Development Corp., at no cost, but the land must be used for low-priced affordable housing for at least 51 years.

The average rent for an apartment in Carson City is currently just over 14-hundred a month, and that’s for a not-so-big apartment. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the median household income in Carson City is $58,305 but there are sooooo many Carson City workers that don’t make that much.
