Welcome to FindLaw's section covering Nevada's education-based laws. Public schools are technically government entities, which is reflected in the law. For instance, teachers, administrators, or other school staff may not lead students in prayer or any other activities that could be seen to promote a particular religion. However, students still have the constitutional right to pray on their own accord; and in Nevada, schools set aside a period of silence during which students may voluntarily pray (or meditate, reflect silently, etc.). Other articles cover the use of corporal punishment, which is banned in Nevada; the privacy of school records; and compulsory education laws.
