LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — New concerns are being raised over a proposed change to the Clark County School District's budgeting.

State lawmakers are considering changes to the CCSD’s reorganization law.

The change is meant to streamline funding for things such as transportation and utilities.

However, opponents say it could create a way for the district's central office to keep more money there.

"What they are saying is this, we don't trust schools with this money. Some principals want it. That is what this bill is if you don't want it you send it back, but some want to take that chance - this is closing the door on that,” Ed Gonzalez, of Hickey Elementary School, said.

CCSD’s chief financial officer says the change is meant to give principals more control over some of the funding.
