CCSD: 10 New Schools Switching to Year-Round Schedules

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- The Clark County School District announced that 10 new schools will be switched to year-round schedules starting in the 2014 - 2015 school year.

School Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky made the announcement during a school board meeting Thursday afternoon.

The district said the change was needed because of overcrowding at the schools. The 10 schools will join three schools that were moved to a year-round calendar for the current school year.

Superintendent Skorkowsky said that without money to build new schools the district had few choices.

The schools include:

Clyde C. Cox Elementary School

Lois Craig Elementary School

Laura Dearing Elementary School

Mark L. Fine Elementary School

Robert E. Lake Elementary School

Aldeane Comito Ries Elementary School

Bertha Ronzone Elementary School

Dr. C. Owen Roundy Elementary School

Gwendolyn Woolley Elementary School

Elaine Wynn Elementary School

The superintendent also announced that the 14 zoom schools, which received extra funding for English language learning programs, will have their school year extended by 17 days to make sure the extra money is fully used to improve the students' skills.
