Clark County, NV (KTNV) -- The Clark County School District said it needs more money. It's up to the voters to decide whether that will happen.
District officials are asking voters to approve "Question 2" on the November ballot.
It calls for a temporary property tax hike what would raise $669 million over six years.
Property taxes would go up $74 per $100,000 of assessed value, every year through 2018.
The money would pay for things like building repairs and technology upgrades at 41 of the district's 357 schools.
The district said one-third of Clark County schools are more than 30 years old. Some were built in the 1960s.
