Online Education uses technology to develop and deliver educational programs to Southern Nevada’s rapidly growing communities. The office strives to increase educational access for students unable to attend classes on campus and to enhance instruction by integrating technology into the curriculum. Students may work toward a college degree, enhance their professional standing, or enrich their understanding of the world.
Oral History of the Public School Principalship
The Oral History of the Public School Principalship gathers the knowledge and wisdom of former public school administrators, most of who served in the Clark County School District (CCSD) during the past 30 to 40 years.
People to be interviewed are identified with the assistance of present and former CCSD personnel. They are then interviewed by advanced graduate students in the department of educational leadership on an extensive number of educational issues. These are issues of interest to educators in the district, the state, and the nation.
Following transcription and classroom discussion/ analysis of the output, copies of the interviews are filed in hard-copy format with the Special Collections Division of UNLV’s Lied Library. In addition, copies are uploaded to a website that provides access to scholars and others seeking information on local school operations. The project is part of a nationwide collection effort underway since 1986.
