LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Superintendent Jesus Jara is rolling out a three phase plan in hopes to end race tensions throughout the district.
Phase 1 is happening for the month of April.
The district is focused on gathering data and observing how students, teachers and the community interact.
Phase 2 will take place in May and June and focus on training teachers and parents to understand diversity.
Phase 3 will pick up in fall of 2019 and continue to push equality and diversity.
The plan comes after several recent incidents involving racially insensitive comments including a CCSD trustee referring to students as "colored."
Jara says the plan is a work in progress and he personally thanked four parents from Arbor View High School for their input and conversation.
