Q: Would a trial date mean no plea deal was offered?

I got assigned a trial date on the LV Municipal Court's website. It's in over a month. Does that mean the prosecutor is not offering a plea deal in my case? Or can the case still be settled by a plea of no-contest and getting a less harsh sentence?
