Special CCSD Board of School Trustees meeting - Adoption of Final Budget is being live-streamed at https://t.co/PhjIRb4UDa.— CCSD (@ClarkCountySch) May 21, 2019
The tentative Clark County School District budget does not include pay raises for its employees during the upcoming school year.
CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara outlined a few key points of the 2019-2020 school district budget at Thursday's Board of Trustees meeting.
"As it stands today, this proposed budget does not include funding for employee increases," Dr. Jara said. "Law requires that I present a balanced budget and salary increases would require either new funding or cuts to existing services that deserves serious public discussion."
The board must approve a final budget by the end of May.
