LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — On Jan. 14 the Clark County School District (CCSD) Board of Trustees approved a Memorandum of Agreement between the district and the Clark County Education Association (CCEA) to transition students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 3 into the hybrid instructional model.

CCSD says the implementation of the hybrid instructional model for students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 3 will begin on March 1 for students.

Before that can happen teachers need to get vaccinated.

“We want to make sure that our educators who are opting to return to in-person instruction are first in that list. We sent out a survey a few days ago, and within the first 6 hours, we had 11,000 educators responded, and over 75% of them they said they wanted the vaccine,” said CCEA President Marie Neisess.

Currently, CCSD is working together with UNLV to get educators vaccinated, and now they can make appointments online for it, using their CCSD email address to confirm their identities.

Throughout the second semester, CCSD will work to transition additional grade levels to the hybrid instructional model; however, there is currently no timeline for this transition the district says.

In a statement, CCSD says, "As the safety and health of our students and staff is a priority, the district will implement the safety and health protocols in alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Southern Nevada Health District."

The next steps in order to plan for this transition, CCSD is requesting that all Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 3 parents complete a hybrid questionnaire.
