statewide policy of integration or desegregation of public schools is reserved

to the Legislature. The responsibility for establishing a local policy of

policy established by the Legislature is delegated to the respective boards of

trustees of local school districts and to the governing body of each charter

school.

      3.  The State Board shall, and the State

Public Charter School Authority, each board of trustees of a local school

district, the governing body of each charter school and any other school

officer may, advise the Legislature at each regular session of any recommended

legislative action to ensure high standards of equality of educational

opportunity for all children in the State of Nevada.
