LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — There won't be a teacher strike after all in the Las Vegas valley, meaning school will start as normal on Monday morning.

That's according to the president of the Clark County Education Association.

He says the union is in contract talks with Clark County School District right now to get a raise.

A strike could potentially happen at some point this school year if recent cuts affect classroom sizes, resources, or teacher positions.
