LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Are you a nerd? If you decline to allow teachers to record their lessons with your kids, you may be … at least according to the Clark County School District.

CCSD sent a notice to parents on Friday morning, asking them to complete a survey through the parent portal.

According to the survey, recordings of online instructions shall be shared with students who were not able to participate and will include “not only the teacher’s instruction, but the image, name, and participation of all students in attendance."

The survey concludes by asking parents to either give their permission or refuse.

For those who agree, the answer is “Yes/yes.” For those who do not, the answer is “Nerd."

After 13 Action News Chief Investigator Darcy Spears posted a screenshot of the survey, the school district reached out to her and said it's not a typo, but a function of Google translate. Parents may or may not see it this way, depending on what browser they use. We are not exactly sure what that means.
