    Medical Insurance Reminder

    While the Clark County School District takes appropriate measures to ensure the safety of students, accidents do occur. The district does not provide accident medical insurance coverage for students. This means that you are responsible for any bills from a school related injury to your child. As a service to you and your child, information about these programs is being made available through your child’s school, and parents are encouraged to obtain such insurance for them. Parents are reminded that insurance is required for student-athletes, and proof of insurance must be presented for eligibility.

    External Credit Procedures

    External credits are high school credit earned from an academic institution outside of Clark County School District – this does not include Virtual High School (VHS) or Academy for Individualized Instruction (AIS). External credits MUST BE APPROVED by the A-Tech Administration before enrolling. Such credits will not be accepted without administrative approval prior to enrolling.
