LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Last night the Clark County School District Board of School Trustees unanimously approved the plan to start the 2020-2021 school year via a distance education model where students learn from home five days a week communicating with teachers daily.

Students will begin distance education classes on Aug. 24. The Board will receive monthly updates on the data and trends related to COVID-19 cases in Nevada that will be used to determine when it is safe to return to classrooms.

The school district says it understands parents may have many questions. The District is currently working on a parent/student guide that will be shared with you in the coming week to provide information on how teachers will communicate with students, and how parents can get access to resources and technology to support students during distance education. The guide will also be available online at ccsd.net. They will communicate with parents once that guide is available.
