The Clark County School District highlighted one of its newest schools on Friday.
Dr. Beverly S. Mathis Elementary School is one of six new elementary schools opening on the first day of school, Aug. 14.
The new facility, located near Windmill Lane and Arville Street, is designed to accommodate 850 students. This new elementary school aims to bring relief to five nearby elementary schools that are currently over capacity.
The six new schools opening in 2017 are made possible by Nevada legislators through the passage of SB 207 in 2015, which allows for 10 years of bonding authority for new school construction and renovation projects and is expected to provide $4.1 billion during this period.
