From the Washoe County School District:
At its Second Annual Celebration Ceremony last weekend, the African American Clergy Council of Northern Nevada (AACCONN) honored Deputy Superintendent Traci Davis for her service to the children of Washoe County. Since becoming deputy superintendent last year, Davis has worked to create and nurture partnerships in the community that help the Washoe County School District (WCSD) reach all of its students with the support they need to succeed in the classroom.
"Traci has dedicated herself to closing achievement gaps among our student populations and to helping each and every one of our students find academic success," said Superintendent Pedro Martinez. "She plays an integral role in helping us to achieve our goal of preparing each of our 63,000 students for college and highly skilled careers, and I am proud to serve our students and families with her."
"I think it is such an amazing time for WCSD," said Davis. "The community is really supporting the WCSD initiatives that assist every child, by name and face, to graduation. More importantly, we have been afforded many opportunities through community groups like AACCONN to provide parents with information and opportunities to assist their children and ensure academic success for all."
AACCONN is a faith based group, and one of its major goals is to reduce student failure rates, increase academic achievement, and help close achievement gaps between groups of students. AACCONN collaborates closely with the Reno Police Department, WCSD, the Reno Sparks NAACP, and other organizations to accomplish positive change in the community.
