E-NDMS Over Capacity

Tags: 

Due to unusually high traffic, E-NDMS is struggling to keep up with demand.  Unfortunately, there's not much we can do on the administrative side other than ride out the storm.  If you don't absolutely need to be in the system this afternoon, it might be a good idea to wait until later this evening or tomorrow.  

Thank you for  your patience.

JAG Program Implemented In Nevada to Address High School Drop-Out Crisis

As Nevada continues to diversify our economy and get our fellow citizens back to work, we believe that the discussion about the outlook of Nevada’s future must begin with the state of our education system. The number of high school drop-outs in our state remains at staggering proportions and the unemployment rate for youth stands at 17.3 percent. We cannot continue to accept these sobering statistics. We must work to change the future – and we believe we have begun to do so for at-risk high school students.

No Progress for America's Teens in 2013 Teen Summer Job Market

Friday’s Employment Situation report for August 2013 revealed that the U.S. employers added 169,000 net new payroll jobs in August. The revised payroll employment estimates for the entire summer (June-July-August) revealed a gain of 445,000 jobs. Unfortunately, none of these payroll jobs were obtained by nation’s teens (16-19). Despite the fact that both the Center for Labor Market Studies and national job placement firm (Challenger-Gray-Christmas) had earlier projected that teen would benefit with improved summer job market. This development unfortunately did not occur.

JAG-Kansas Launched in 25 Schools Across Kansas!

TOPEKA, KS — A new program has come to Kansas, aiming to keep high school students in school until graduation, and helping them prepare for a future career or further education.

Nicolette Schleisman was at Highland Park High School Monday for the unveiling of Jobs for American Grads at Kansas schools. She spoke with the teacher, and some of his students about how important the course is for them.

“How far I go, depends on me. That is what we will think about each and every day when we come to school,” said Michael Munoz.

Regions Supports Dropout Prevention Programs and Workforce Readiness Training for At-Risk Students

When young people drop out of school, their potential as wage earners — and as bank customers —diminishes greatly. Keeping at-risk students in school and on track for better career opportunities is why Regions vigorously supports Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG).
