“We encourage schools, teachers, nonprofits and community groups in Southern Nevada to explore our grants and submit their most impactful ideas,” said Beverly Rogers, Chairman of the Board for The Rogers Foundation. “My late husband Jim Rogers had a vision of strengthening and empowering Southern Nevada through arts and education, and we are seeking applicants who share that same devotion.”

On Feb. 8, GrantWell – a UNLV-based administrator of The Rogers Foundation’s grants – will begin hosting online grant writing workshops, which applicants can utilize 24/7 at their own convenience. GrantWell will also conduct in-person seminars, with dates forthcoming.

In addition to the grants, The Rogers Foundation is currently accepting applications for college scholarships, available to local high school seniors.

Judge Wilson Rules in Favor of NV Parents, Grants Preliminary Injunction to Block Unconstitutional Private School Voucher Law

JUDGE WILSON RULES IN FAVOR OF NEVADA PARENTS

Grants Preliminary Injunction To Block
Unconstitutional Private School Voucher Law


Today, Judge James Wilson in the First Judicial District Court in Carson City issued an order halting implementation of Nevada’s unlimited voucher program. The ruling is a clear victory for the children attending public schools all across the state.

Educate Nevada Now (ENN), powered by The Rogers Foundation, stands fully behind these parents’ efforts to safeguard Nevada’s public schools.

Judge Wilson’s ruling grants a preliminary injunction to halt implementation of

(SB302), a private school voucher law that would have otherwise diverted funds from public schools beginning as early as February.

“Not only the plaintiffs won today,” said Sylvia Lazos, ENN’s Policy Director. “Judge Wilson’s ruling is a victory for all 460,000 public school children in Nevada, their parents, teachers, administrators and school board members. We are thrilled with the decision and look forward to continuing dialogue focused on improving our state’s education systems.”

Today’s decision upholds the important legal principle that the Nevada Constitution protects the educational rights of all children. It also affirms the Constitutional requirement that public school funding, once earmarked by the Legislature, can only be dedicated to supporting public education and nothing else.

The legal team representing Nevada parents in this case are working pro bono. The team consists of: Tamerlin J. Godley, Laura Mathe, Samuel Boyd and Thomas Clancy of Munger, Tolles & Olson, LLP; Don Springmeyer, Justin Jones and Bradley Schrager of Wolf, Rifkin, Shapiro, Schulman & Rabkin, LLP; and David Sciarra and Amanda Morgan of the nonprofit Education Law Center, a partner of ENN and The Rogers Foundation.
