LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County School District school board is expected to discuss a possible $9 million payout settlement.

The issue to be discussed involves a lawsuit against Michael Banco, a convicted sex offender who had been a bus driver for the school district for about 20 years, according to the agenda for the board of trustees meeting.

School board members will meet to discuss the possible payout on Thursday, March 23.

In February 2022, CCSD approved another $9 million settlement on a lawsuit filed in 2020.

Banco, the school bus driver at the time, was arrested in 2015 after being caught on a surveillance camera abusing students on a bus. He is serving 35 years to life in prison.

The 8 News Now Investigators reported on the case last year and found that additional victims were found after one student spoke up about being sexually abused.

In a separate case on March 9, CCSD board members approved a $5.45 million payout to JJ Wahrer a student, and his family after he was hit with a stick by his teacher Melody Carter in 2018.
