Monday, Clark County School District officials said there is a plan and its called the Cultural Turnaround Process at Arbor View HS - a process that will be updated every 90 days based on what is working.

In a statement released by the district, the process will include an additional dean to provide more eyes on the school climate, listening and gathering, various forms of outreach, creating training opportunities and holding all adults and students accountable.

“If everyone just learned how to love one another then that would be a lot easier on our school system. they don't just pick this up at school,” said community member Lawanna Calhoun.
