Teachers rally for better pay outside superintendent search meeting

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - Teachers rallied outside the Clark County School District Board of Trustees meeting for the Superintendent Candidates around 9:30 a.m. Saturday.

The protest took place at 2832 East Flamingo Road, near Eastern Avenue.

Attendees say they want the Trustees to pay educators their step increase and fund health insurance. 

“People are fed up with how things are going in the school district right now in terms of how teacher’s are being treated,” says John Vellardita, Clark County Education Association.

Meanwhile inside, community members listened in as six finalists in the superintendent race answered questions on how they would improve Clark County schools.

"Educators have had enough of the harmful decisions made by CCSD and the School Board of Trustees and are demanding respect," wrote a representative from the Clark County Education Association in a statement to the press.

The CCEA acts as the union for educators in Clark County and helped organize the rally.

“They need to work hand in glove with these teachers in order to make our system better,” says Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chairman. 

The Board of School Trustees is set to make their pick for the next superintendent on May 2.
