The State Budget Impact on CCSD
The State Budget Impact on CCSD

Listen
AIR DATE: June 17, 2011

The blow to public education was softened by an additional $250-million in state funds that were allocated to schools by the legislature. Now, the Clark County School District will be able to keep 1,000 teachers that were to be laid off. The district will also be able to keep class sizes at current levels and restore some support staff. The full effect of legislative cuts have yet to be determined but schools in Clark County now have a good picture of what they will be dealing with. But, despite the additional money the district still has to fill a $150-million budget gap which they say will be addressed by previous proposals. We talk with CCSD Board of Trustee President, Carolyn Edwards about the district's plan after the legislature.

    What is the status of the District's contract with Teach for America? If there are teachers currently assigned to a school through TFA who are not effective, can these teachers be bumped, replaced? Wouldn't this save jobs for people who are not TFA?
