The Business Educational Alliance for the Children of Nevada (BEACON) is a private group of concerned business leaders in Nevada advocating for education reform. Their primary focus for reform has been on Clark County School District’s empowerment school model.

Empowerment schools offer schools autonomy over their budgets in exchange for becoming accountable for results.
