Gov. Steve Sisolak on Wednesday signed over his first check as governor to the Education Department’s gift fund.

His official salary will be donated to support Title 1 schools across the state. He said that honors his commitment to back funding for public education.

For each fiscal quarter of his four-year term in office, he said he will donate his full net salary to the Education Gift Fund. He said with 416 title I schools in Nevada, each will receive a one time donation of $1,000.
