Here's a look at how the CCSD budget cuts could effect students this year. Sean Delancey reporting.
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A week from the first day of classes in Clark County, Superintendent Jesus Jara says the budgets submitted by high school and middle school principals have been reviewed, are all balanced, and have been approved.
The principals had to cut $98.02 per enrolled student from their schools to make up for a roughly $17,000,000 budget shortfall.
Without details as to what exactly was cut from the schools, Clark County Education Association President John Vellardita has threatened a district-wide teacher strike for the beginning of the school year if any cut affects teachers and support staff positions or classroom sizes.
