LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Clark County School District is facing a major hurdle after announcing that teachers and staff would be required to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
At the beginning of September, CCSD's website had 728 job openings posted.
13 Action News contacted CCSD asking if that number had increased following the announcement of a vaccine mandate. A spokesperson said it had approximately 750 positions open, however, the school district did not clarify if those additional vacant positions were directly tied to the new mandate.
Cynthia Mirabelli is a former CCSD teacher. She worked with the school district for 6 years before resigning from her position.
“I feel like I’m supposed to be helping kids. I love my job. The school district is really suffering and we’re coming up to another school year that I'm sure is not gonna be any easier. I think it’s just in this perfect disaster for people that we’re already burnt out,” Mirabelli said.
