At the Board Meeting on June 25th, CCSD Trustees were presented with a proposed plan for reopening schools
in the fall. Thousands of community members weighed in on their thoughts about the model and it was clear that the current plan to reopen schools does not benefit the majority of our students, staff, and families
- and there are great ideas for improvement.
Since calling out for community support
, over 650 thoughtful responses have been submitted and provided multiple ideas on how the 2020-2021 school year could be reconsidered.
CCSD has until July 14th to submit a plan
to the Nevada Department of Education. The board is discussing the reopening plan on July 6th
and is expected to vote on a plan on July 9th
Due to time constraints we are providing responses that can be applied to improve the current proposed plan. Possible modifications were formed collaboratively, represent the diverse Clark County community, and would support the ongoing effort to reopen schools safely. The following recommendations are separated in a way that they could easily be picked through and added to the current plan.
Community teams are continuing to research, work through details, and create brand new plans in the event the proposed plan is not approved. We will be closely monitoring the reopening of Clark County schools, providing more recommendations, and are available on request to help the Superintendent and CCSD staff to safely reopen in the best possible ways for the community.
