Plan of Operation

Enter your text here...

Dear Gilbert Families,


Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year.

Each school in the Clark County School District will create a School Organizational Team which will assist the principal in making important decisions impacting the school. This team will be made up of elected licensed staff, education support professionals, parents/guardians, and students (at the secondary level), as well as one or more optional, non‐elected community members. Cultural diversity reflective of the student population should be considered.

The School Organizational Team is responsible for:

  • Providing assistance and advice to the principal regarding the development of the School Plan of Operation.
  • Providing continued assistance and advice to the principal in carrying out the School Plan of Operation.
  • Assisting in the discussion of any additional authority to be transferred to the school to carry out responsibilities.
  • Assisting with the selection of the next principal when a principal vacancy occurs.

Schools with a Parent Organization

Parent Organizations are responsible for carrying out elections for parent SOT members. Assistance can be found at

Election Process:

Please refer to the information below regarding the Parent SOT Election Process. If you are interested in submitting a name to be included in the ballot, please follow the instructions. You may also contact the school administration (John R Pilotin, Principal, Melissa Golino, Assistant Principal) or our PTA President, Lindsey Dever, or Maria Cordova.

Parent SOT Elections

Parents and legal guardians are eligible to be members of the SOT at the schools where their children are currently enrolled.

CCSD employees cannot serve as parent/guardian members of the SOT if their child attends the school at which they work.  However, those employees may serve as licensed or support staff members of the SOT at that school.  CCSD employees may also serve as parent/guardian members of a SOT if their child attends a school different from their work location.

According to state law, if a parent organization (PTA) currently exists at a school, they will establish and run the election process for parents.  For schools without a parent organization, the school principal will run the election process.

You will be informed of all upcoming School Organization (SOT) Meetings and agendas, including when essential voting will occur.  Dates of SOT Meetings, agendas, and minutes will be posted on our School Website, under the School Organization Team Section.

Should you have any questions, please contact me, 702 799 4730 ext. 4101.
