I am humbled, honored, and excited to announce that my colleagues have again elected me president of the board, and that my colleagues statewide have voted me New School Board Member of the Year by the Nevada Association of School Boards. I put my heart and soul into this work for our schools, and I am grateful for their appreciation and endorsement of my efforts.

This coming year holds challenges and opportunities for our public schools. My promise to the community is to be thoughtful, forthcoming, and inclusive as we move through a time of transition. I’m proud of the improvements we’ve made, and look forward to building on those.

Doing the job of board president means I will have more need of community support for my campaign. If you can make a contribution or sign up to volunteer, those links are in the comments. Thank you for helping me continue to support our schools.

~ Beth Smith, School Board Trustee, District D

Glenn Duncan Elementary is pure magic. 🪄 The energy is like going to school in a supportive hug. Led by head Dolphin Principal Ryan Smith, a nationally renowned language expert, children explore their talent and are encouraged to envision their future success. Each month the school focuses on a career area, like healthcare, safety services, art & design, and construction, with guest speakers who share their jobs. They even create resumes to highlight their talents! Thanks to their incredible team of talented educators, the Duncan Dolphins are *thriving*. English Language Learning students are succeeding in record numbers. They even gained a star in the recent NV state ratings. Their secret lies in the firm and unwavering knowledge that each child is brimming with potential ready to be realized, and that message is loud and clear around them. And it’s why their all-purpose room is a college-themed student union. These kids are our future, and I’m so proud of Principal Smith and the Duncan team for being a shining light within the Washoe County School District.Image attachmentImage attachment+3Image attachment

Today was years in the making. I participated in a roundtable hosted by US Education Secretary Miguel Cardona and Labor Acting Secretary Julie Su to spotlight WCSDs achievement in partnering with its labor associations to benefit our team and the children we serve. WEA President Calen Evans and several of our educators talked about what their new contract means with a focus on the 20% raise and the progress towards meaningful change that champions the importance of educators. Our hard work is receiving national attention, and its all because of the dedicated people who show each day for kids.
