PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL

Public elementary, middle and/or high school. It operates under a charter or contract
issued by a public entity such as a local school board or state board of education.
Individual states determine in its charter school legislation what rules must be adhered
to, what rules may be waived, and what procedures must be followed to obtain a charter.
Charter schools are funded with taxpayer dollars and receive the same per-pupil
allocation from the state as the school district does. In return for autonomy, charter
schools are held accountable for student performance. Each charter school has its own
governing body that directs its operations. If the goals of the school set forth in the
charter are not reached, the school’s charter may be revoked.

DUAL CREDIT

Only available for grades 11 – 12. At the College of Southern Nevada High School,
students take required classes with Clark County School District teachers and elective
classes with the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) instructors. Students earn both high
school and college credit for college classes, thus finishing high school graduation
requirements while starting college course work. They enroll in college classes which
meet their needs, whether pursuing a vocational certificate, an Associate of Arts or
Science degree, or plan to transfer the college credits to a four-year college or
university. Classes are available on the Cheyenne, West Charleston, and Henderson
campuses of the College of Southern Nevada. The college atmosphere encourages students
to achieve and to accept responsibility for their education in a safe and comfortable
environment. Bells do not exist and students must be self-disciplined. Students are
scheduled into their high school classes by their counselors, but they may schedule
their college classes to fit their personal needs.
