LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County School District has sent out a message from Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara regarding the plans to return to school buildings.

Here is the full statement:
"As I continue to monitor COVID-19 cases in Nevada, I have shared with the Board of School Trustees that CCSD will remain in Distance Education for the remainder of the semester. Staff will continue to telecommute through the end of the first semester, on December 18, 2020. We will continue monitoring the health data closely, in partnership with the Southern Nevada Health District, local partners in Clark County and the Governor's Office. We will bring our next Transition Plan to the Board of School Trustees in early January 2021 for their consideration."
