The Clark County Commission and the Clark County School Board will meet jointly on Thursday, July 18 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss the Open Schools-Open Doors interlocal agreement and Assembly Bill 309, which allows the Commission to approve a quarter-cent sales tax increase to pay for education, affordable housing, programs to combat homelessness and workforce training.
County commissioners have asked the school district to expand the Open Schools-Open Doors agreement to allow more residents across the County to use school facilities after hours. Currently, a limited number of school sites are available for public use outside of school hours.
The two boards also will receive a presentation on Senate Bill 543 concerning the modernizing of the state's K-12 funding system.
The AB 309 discussion is broken into four parts: early childhood education, truancy reduction programs, adult education and incentives for the recruitment or retention of licensed teachers for high-vacancy Clark County School District schools.
The meeting will be held at the Clark County Government Center in the first-floor Commission Chambers in downtown Las Vegas at 500 S. Grand Central Parkway. It may be viewed live on Clark County Television (CCTV) and at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov and www.YouTube.com/ClarkCountyNV.
