Clark County School District students to receive awards for reading

About 130 Clark County School District students will receive "Rock Star" Reading Awards Monday evening.

The event will be held at Rio hotel-casino at 6 p.m. for the APT Celebration of Dedication.

The Nevada Department of Education, CCSD and Nevada PEP are hosting the second annual Assess-Plan-Teach Celebration of Dedication to honor the success of students with disabilities in reading and writing.

APT is a collaboration among the Nevada Department of Education, CCSD and Nevada PEP designed to provide teachers of students with disabilities high quality professional development in reading and writing strategies. 

Nevada received a five-year $3.78 million Federal State Professional Development Grant in 2015 to improve the performance of third-grade students with disabilities in CCSD on statewide assessments of reading/language arts through building the district's capacity to strengthen the skills of special education teachers in assessment, instructional planning and teaching.
