CCSD To Issue Millions In Bonds For School Repair

The Clark County School District will be able to issue $400 million more in facilities bonds after gaining approval from the state’s Oversight Panel for School Facilities Wednesday.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the money will be used for new buildings and maintenance at older ones.

The district recently made it a priority to renovate and keep up existing schools instead of building new ones. They’ve pointed to $6 billion in needed maintenance, much of it the 290 schools that are over 20 years old.
