Concerns about CCSD persist as school year approaches

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –

Summertime trip has actually come and gone, and on Monday morning students in the Clark County School District will certainly be back in the class.

On Friday night, a back-to-school fair was held at West Charleston/Essex Park in Las Vegas. It was a last possibility for kids to have a good time without school hanging over their heads. Moms and dads and guardians in participation had much more than enjoyable on their minds.

“Overcrowding of the schools is really troubling me. Absence of instructors, that’s another thing that’s troubling me. And lack of discipline amongst the children. Instead of investing their time teaching, they’re spending their time disciplining, and that’s not what school is all about,” said Shandra Findley, grandma to five CCSD students.

Still in need of about 900 instructors, the district is once more expected to employ numerous hundred long-lasting alternatives.

” [I’m concerned] with the teacher lack and how everything is gon na play out, due to the fact that you do not desire 50 to 60 kids in a classroom. Ideally the district gets all that dealt with,” stated Curtis Jackson, a dad to 4 CCSD students.

Not every parent was stressed. Natalie Nelson, mom to a kindergartner, feels her son remains in excellent hands.

“This school district, as far as having him in the child program, has not done anything but good ideas for us so far. As he gets older, with the sex education controversy and all that, that’s when I’ll focus on that, however as he’s little we’re off to a great start,” Nelson said.

Findley said she is so worried about the teacher shortage that she’s considering stopping her task and becoming a full-time alternative while pursuing a teaching credential.

Drivers have to be aware that school zones get back into impact Monday. Cops will certainly have a heavy presence around schools to make sure vehicle drivers follow the posted speeds.
