CCSD and the CCEA have reached an agreement on teacher pay avoiding a potential strike from teachers all across the Clark County School District.
The Clark County Teacher’s Union plans on announcing a strike if its demands are not met in contract talks with the Clark County School District. The Clark County Education Association, which has threatened to strike for months, has given the district until Thursday to propose an acceptable contract for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years.
LVMPD and Superintendent Jesus Jara brief the public on back to school safety.
Superintendent Jesus Jara should resign or be fired. That’s the belief of Stephen Augspurger, the executive director of the Clark County Association of School Administrators and Profession-technical Employees. Augspurger said Jara has lost the confidence of the district’s principals by not seeking their input on a number of issues, including firing all the deans in the district.
The Clark County School District revealed for the first time Tuesday that it is facing a budget deficit of between $17 million and $18 million next year despite winning additional funding in the just concluded legislative session. That means the possibility of a teachers strike in the fall remains on the table.
CCSD announced in May that it would hire attorney Robert Freeman to conduct an independent investigation into the hiring of Jason Wright. Wright is the husband of school board president Deanna Wright. He stands accused of physically assaulting children and the district has admitted that former superintendent personally intervened to help him get a job. Six months later, you’re paying Freeman’s bills but can’t see his findings.
Clark County School District Trustee Kevin Child announced a sweeping lawsuit against fellow trustees and former school district leadership along with attorney Craig Mueller on Sept 7.
