. The Clark County School Board approved approximately $13.9 million in brand-new cuts as it faces a budget plan shortfall of up to $60 million.
The board anticipates the brand-new round of cuts authorized Thursday will conserve the district about $7 million to $13.9 million.
The cuts originate from the elimination of more than 272 positions and numerous services.
Schools are anticipated to make a combined $17.4 million in cuts to individual spending plans too.
Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky states they have been striving on “aiming to prevent more cuts to schools.”
The board authorized $43 million in cuts last month, and it’s most likely to approve more at the end of this month.
