County Commission, School Board Meet Jointly Thursday

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 and CCTV is available in the Las Vegas area on Channel 4/1004 on Cox cable and on CenturyLink on Channels 4/1004 as well as in Laughlin on Channel 14 via Suddenlink.
