AIR DATE: March 11, 2013

Clark County Superintendent Dwight Jones decided the best way to deal with overcrowded schools in the southwest valley is to turn three of them to year-round schedules. The three schools are Robert L. Forbuss, Carolyn S. Reedom and William V. Wright elementary. The school board prefers this plan over busing kids to different zones. But, even the board knows this is just a temporary fix.  Is year-round scheduling the right solution here?

What idiot decided that an expensive building complex like a school should continue to be essentially vacant for 3 months of the year in the first place? After all, we're no farmers now in the 21st century. Personally, I'd suggest that we have year-round school in *two* shifts per day... that could work out to the the called-for number of hours, while instantly *doubling* capacity with little or no extra infrastructure cost.
