LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A recent survey conducted by the Clark County School District asked parents, students and staff about campus safety within the district.

The results, which were released this week, showed the answers varied between school employees, parents and students themselves.

Over 88 percent of district employees said their school was a safe place for students.

When it came to parents, 90.7 percent said their child did feel safe at school, and 74.2 percent of students said they did, in fact, feel safe at their school.

However, all three groups did show slightly lower confidence in school safety compared with last year.

Parents and employees each answered 20 questions targeting school and district performance in the survey.

While, students answered more than 50 questions covering safety, parent involvement, student perceptions, diversity, and social learning.
