New school will bring relief to two nearby schools over capacity
LAS VEGAS – The Clark County School District (CCSD) broke ground on a new elementary school near the intersection of Chartan Avenue and Pioneer Way. It is the fourth of six new elementary schools that will break ground in 2016, with funds from the 2015 Capital Improvement Program.
State Senator Becky Harris (D-9) was in attendance to help commemorate the groundbreaking, as well as CCSD Board of School Trustees members Carolyn Edwards and Kevin L. Child. Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky addressed the importance of building new schools in our community. Pre-kindergarten students and the dance team from nearby William V. Wright Elementary School kicked off the celebration with a special performance.
Construction of this new elementary school will bring relief to two nearby elementary schools that are currently over capacity. The projects breaking ground in 2016 are made possible by Nevada legislators through the passage of SB 207, which allows for 10 years of bonding authority for new school construction and renovation projects and is expected to provide $4.1 billion during this period.
