On Tuesday, December 5, we have scheduled exterior pest control treatment throughout the grounds at our school. While neither students nor staff are expected to be exposed to volatile organic compounds at concentrations greater than established as safe, we know from experience that some people are unusually sensitive to materials that are required to perform this work. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the CCSD Facility Services Division at (702) 799-0043.
We have over 100 trained volunteers who assist us at Nate Mack! If you are one of these volunteers, please be sure your are up-to-date with the district's requirements so that you can continue to volunteer at our school. Please start by reading the information below. Unfortunately, anyone does not comply with these regulations will not be able to volunteer for Nate Mack after the winter break (January 8).
This is a wonderful time to reflect on all of the components of a great school community and to extend a very heart-felt THANK YOU to everyone who contributes. We have a lot to be grateful for here at Mack, not the least of which is an amazing staff and generous, supportive families. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being in integral part of our school community. I am truly grateful to work with the staff and families at Nate Mack Elementary School!

“Engagement is one of the district’s Pledge of Achievement success indicators. The annual survey is an important opportunity for us to hear from and listen to what parents think about their child’s school and the district as a whole,” said Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky. “It is vital that we receive feedback from parents as CCSD employees work hard to improve all areas of education.”
Surveys have also been designed for students and staff to take at ccsd.net/survey, in order for CCSD to obtain a full representation of all groups that make up the school district.
Questions asked in the survey align with district goals, focus areas and strategic imperatives that will be used to help make improvements to schools and increase parent engagement. As part of the district’s efforts to maintain transparency with the community, survey results will be made available to the public in early 2018.
For parents and guardians who wish to participate, but do not have computer/internet access, the following locations have computers available for public use:
• All CCSD schools
• CCSD Administrative Center, 5100 W. Sahara Ave., Las Vegas
• CCSD Curriculum and Professional Development Building, 3950 S. Pecos-
McLeod, Las Vegas
• CCSD Edward A. Greer Education Center, 2832 E. Flamingo Rd., Las Vegas
• CCSD offices located at:
• 5240 Goldfield St., North Las Vegas (Mojave HS campus)
• 2298 Vegas Valley Drive, Las Vegas, (Valley HS campus)
• 4760 W. Desert Inn Road, Las Vegas (Cashman MS campus)
There are several questions on the survey that are school specific; therefore parents and guardians must enter their child’s student ID number and birth date or the name of the school when completing the survey at ccsd.net/survey. Entering student information ensures that each school is receiving their specific responses from parents to gauge their school climate. The identity of individual students, parents or staff who respond to the survey will not be disclosed to any school or district administrator. Survey results will only be shared in the aggregate.
The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete and is accessible on tablets and smart phones. Every parent is invited to take a survey for each child enrolled in a CCSD school.
Parents and guardians may request a paper copy of the survey from their child’s school. Any questions or concerns can be addressed by calling CCSD’s Assessment, Accountability, Research and School Improvement division at 702-799-1041, option 4.
