LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Friday morning, the Clark County School District Board of Trustees held a special meeting to address school safety.
The meeting comes after a recent uptick in campus violence. A mom of a CCSD student said her daughter was beaten in a school bathroom back in January.
“I really want these schools to pay attention to our students. I understand that they’re so busy and short-staffed, but what am I supposed to do as a parent? They want my child to go to school but she’s not being protected on campus,” said Monica Carcamo.
During the Friday meeting, trustees said the recent incidents on campus are not only a matter of violence but also bullying, lack of discipline and a lack of security on campus.

Trustees also touched on the fact that teachers and staff don't know how to intervene when fights happen because of a lack of policy and procedure. They say finding a solution is going to take a lot of time and a lot of work.
The next step is inviting the public to come speak at their next meeting on March 10.
They also have a regular board meeting coming up on Feb. 24. You can view the agenda here.
