Governor Sisolak Meets with Washoe Teachers, Discusses Education Priorities

Today, Governor Sisolak sat down with teachers at Hug High School in Sparks to discuss ways he can further support educators and students in a second term.

This meeting comes after the governor released a “Parents for Sisolak” and “Teachers for Sisolak” endorsement group with hundreds of parents and educators endorsing his reelection.

Governor Sisolak supported educators by funding schools at their highest levels in history, giving teachers their first raise in over a decade, partnering with DonorsChoose to provide teachers with up to $800 in funding towards classroom supplies, replacing at least 33 aging schools and building at least 13 new schools, providing nearly 4,000 future educators with stipends and tuition assistance to address the teacher shortage, and donating his entire state salary — totaling over $320,000 — to Nevada public schools.
