Integrating high-performing systems research, deeper learning innovations, and user-centered education policy through design thinking so all NV students get what they need to thrive.

Nevada Succeeds is dedicated to maximizing our education system's human talent, ensuring education professionals are empowered to operate at their highest levels. We explore, research, brainstorm, and prototype classroom, leadership, and policy initiatives that define and redefine success.

A nonprofit organization, we work with educators, school districts, government officials, and policy experts to overcome systemic barriers. Founded through partnerships with our business sector in 2013, we engage our private sector as thinking partners in catalyzing improvement, innovation, and success.

We recognize that high performing education systems support research-minded, continuously collaborative professionals who value reflection, inquiry, and iteration. When the space for this kind of educator-driven collaboration is truly supported, the adults in our schools (and our system) are able to lead to meet the needs of all learners. Our initiatives, rooted in a human-centered design thinking framework, impact grassroots change in schools by developing and leveraging educator expertise that ultimately informs policy to drive systemic reform. 

Focused on developing a community of researching practioners , Nevada Succeeds recognizes that adults are the levers of change to empower student success. How might we define and redefine success together?
