CCSD Educational Student Learning Extension Activities

During the timeframe in which the schools in the Clark County School District are closed, CCSD is providing student learning extension opportunities for all students. These student learning extension opportunities are not required for students to complete but attempt to provide activities for students to engage in learning at home.

The Special Needs Resource Library at Vegas PBS is available to complete requests for books for students with special needs from parents/guardians by calling 702-799-1010, Option 7 or emailing SpecialNeeds@VegasPBS.org

Moving to learning online can be stressful. But there are a few tip and resources to help you be successful in this new environment.

Study Habits of Successful Online Students

  • Create a Study Schedule

    Students who create a study routine and stick to it are more likely to be successful

  • Have a Clear Study Area

    Have a designated study area and keep it clear of clutter.

  • Shut off Unnecessary Technology

    When you sit down to work, put your phone on silent and set “do not disturb” for online messaging.

  • Spread Out Your Schedule

    Break up your study schedule into 40-50 minutes sections instead of one long marathon session.

  • Take Notes

    When participating in a webinar session, take your own notes – just like you would in a F2F class.

  • Connect with Other Focused Students

    Set up an online review session with a student who has the same study habits as you.

  • Ask for Help

    Reach out to your teacher or classmates as soon as possible when you don’t understand.

  • Use Available Online Resources

    There are many apps and programs to help you study. Use them to prepare for test and quizzes.

  • Stay Mentally & Physically Healthy

    Don’t stare at a screen all day. Take breaks, go on walks, get plenty of sleep, and eat healthy foods.
