Washington, D.C. (January 25, 2019) –– The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) Executive Director Carissa Moffat Miller released the following statement in response to Nevada Superintendent of Public Instruction Steve Canavero’s resignation.

Superintendent Canavero is a champion for opening doors of opportunity for all students in his state. He helped to develop and pass educational investments and reforms in Nevada that have fueled programs to raise the achievement of English language learners and students in poverty,” said CCSSO Executive Director Carissa Moffat Miller.

“On the national level, the Superintendent has assisted CCSSO in pushing for equitable education opportunities for all kids and for creating pathways for students to achieve success in college, careers and life. He is a committed educational leader and I wish him success in his next chapter. I look forward to working with the next Nevada chief to continue improving equitable opportunities for Nevada kids.”

The Council seeks member consensus on major educational issues and expresses their views to civic and professional organizations, federal agencies, Congress, and the public.
