Health and Safety



The Clark County School District is dedicated to promoting the safety, well-being, and success of all students. The goal of providing resources to families about bullying, cyberbullying, and/or discrimination based on race is to empower students and adults with information to help them understand what bullying, cyberbullying, and/or discrimination based on race is, who is affected by it, and what can be done to prevent it.

CCSD is committed to providing a safe, secure, and respectful learning environment for all students and employees in all District facilities and school-sponsored events. CCSD takes a strong stance against bullying, cyberbullying, and/or discrimination based on race. Under Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 388.122, “bullying” means written, verbal or electronic expressions or physical acts or gestures, or any combination thereof, that are directed at a person or group of persons, or a single severe and willful act or expression that is directed at a person or group of persons. (See CCSD Policy 5137 for the full definition of bullying.) Under NRS 388.123, “cyberbullying” means bullying through the use of electronic communication. The term includes the use of electronic communication to transmit or distribute a sexual image of a minor.

Under NRS 388.135, “Discrimination based on Race” means any single or repeated or pervasive act or acts, whether targeted to a specific person or targeted in general to any person’s demographic, regarding the race, color, culture, religion, language, ethnicity or national origin of a person that causes harm or creates a hostile work or learning environment, which may include, without limitation, jokes, threats, physical altercations or intimidation; and that occurs in person, online or in any other setting including, without limitation, in a course of distance education. A student who is a “substantiated” victim of bullying, cyberbullying, and/or discrimination based on race may be reassigned to another public school at the parent/guardian’s request.

This requirement does not supersede the District’s ability to discipline offenders in accordance with CCSD regulations.

To report or discuss bullying, cyberbullying, and/or discrimination based on race at your child’s school, please contact your school principal/administrator, or visit either or Say No To Bullying.

Students, parents/guardians, and faculty throughout Nevada have access to SafeVoice, an anonymous reporting system used to report threats to the safety or well-being of students. SafeVoice was established by the Nevada Department of Education under Nevada law to protect student wellness, prevent violence, and save lives. (SafeVoice is found at Nevada Revised Statutes 388.1451 to 388.1459.)

In partnership with the Nevada Department of Public Safety, the SafeVoice program provides students with a safe place to submit tips concerning their own safety or that of others. A fully trained professional team of experts responds in an appropriate manner 24/7/365. Tips always stay anonymous.

SafeVoice reports can be made through the hotline by calling 1-833-216-SAFE (7233), electronically at, or through a free mobile app available in the app store for either Android or iPhone.

To support the Clark County School District’s one-to-one device initiatives and deployments, distance and blended learning, mental health support initiatives, and to comply with the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) E-rate program rules, the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), and the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act, CCSD requires a content filtering, management, theft recovery, alerting, and remote teaching/proctoring solution. CCSD will continue the usage of GoGuardian districtwide for the 2023-2024 school year.

GoGuardian is deployed to the students’ user accounts as an extension and the application functionality will be only enabled when a student is logged into a Chromebook or Chrome browser on any operating system (Mac/PC) with their user account, regardless of whether the device was issued by CCSD or is a personal device.

The GoGuardian Suite is utilized for content filtering and blocking access to harmful or inappropriate websites. GoGuardian also provides class management tools for teachers to help in keeping students on-task and away from distracting content during instructional time. In addition, GoGuardian Beacon 24/7 provides alerts to CCSD staff 24 hours a day, monitoring online activity that is considered a life-safety issue or threat such as actively planning suicide or self-harm. More information for parents/guardians can be found in the GoGuardian Parent Information (doc).

Though GoGuardian may provide protection against inappropriate content for students, monitor online activities, and alert for life-safety issues, no filtering or monitoring system is perfect. CCSD cannot and does not represent that inappropriate or objectionable material can be completely filtered and does not guarantee that all life-safety issues will be detected. Parents/Guardians are still responsible for actively monitoring their child(ren).

Additional information on the GoGuardian Suite can be found on

Parents/Guardians should frequently review the content, including apps, media files, etc., of students’ mobile devices to ensure that they are being used appropriately. If parents/guardians are concerned or have questions regarding the use of the devices, they may contact school staff for clarification.

It is always a good time to review basic safety information with your child

The Clark County School District Police Department (CCSDPD) is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment conducive to learning. There are 189 certified school police officers who provide police services to the District. School police officers patrol District schools and facilities 24/7/365. Campus-based school police officers are assigned to most traditional high schools with a goal of building positive relationships with staff, students, and parents/guardians. The following are examples of CCSDPD crime prevention programs that promote school safety:

  • Law Enforcement Against Drugs (LEADS), a 10-week crime prevention program for 6th and 7th grade students
  • Rocket Rules, a crime prevention program for 1st and 2nd grade students
  • Zero Teen Fatalities (ZTF), a safe driving program designed to teach safe driving habits behind the wheel

Call school police dispatch at 702-799-5411 in case of a school-related emergency or for incidents outside regular school hours.

✔ Parents/Guardians should know with whom their child is walking or bicycling and what is his/her normal route to school.

✔ Remind your child not to take shortcuts through or play alone in deserted areas.

✔ Parents/Guardians should walk or ride with their younger children and occasionally accompany older children to school, and/or monitor the route.

✔ Watch out for vehicles at every driveway and intersection. Look for drivers in parked cars as they may be getting ready to move.

✔ Remember to cross streets only at crosswalks and/or intersections, and to always stop, look both ways (left, right, then left), and continue to look as you cross the street.

✔ Bicycles should be ridden only on the right side of the street, preferably in a bike lane, or on a multi-use pathway.

✔ Bicyclists should always wear a helmet, and walk their bike across busy streets and through crosswalks.

✔ When a sidewalk is not available, walk on the shoulder of the road facing the oncoming traffic.

✔ Respect crossing guards.

✔ Remind your child not to be on their cell phones while walking or bicycling.

CCSD Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program encourages safe walking and bicycling to and from schools. SRTS is based on six principles, the “6 E’s“: Education, Encouragement, Engagement, Engineering, Evaluation, and Equity.

SRTS offers free programs to schools K-12 that include, but are not limited to, bike-pedestrian safety clinics, bike repair workshops, student safety assemblies, parent workshops, walk and roll incentive programs, and helmet fittings.

SRTS programs are sustained efforts by parents/guardians, schools, community leaders, and local, state, and federal governments to improve the health and well-being of children by enabling and encouraging them to walk and bicycle to school and to do so safely.

For additional resources and information, visit Safe Routes to School or contact the program through the Engagement Unit at 702-799-0303.

Readily accessible epinephrine is integral for emergency treatment of anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction. Stock epinephrine is maintained at each school site for use during regular school hours by trained personnel.

Stock Narcan is used in the emergency treatment of potential opioid-related overdoses and is maintained at each school site. Trained personnel are able to administer Narcan during the school day if needed.

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are placed on all school district campuses for use in a cardiac emergency. Every school has trained teams to provide CPR in an emergency.
