CORRECTION: The CCSD Board of Trustees is still discussing the District’s original proposed plan. The vote 8NN initially reported was against Trustee Ford’s alternate plan, which was denied by the board in a 2-5 vote.

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County School District Board of Trustees is discussing the District’s reopening plan and working toward a vote.

The plan, which was first presented last month, gives parents the option to choose between a blend of in-person and at-home learning or strictly digital instruction.

Reactions to CCSD’s plan are certainly mixed. Some families are good with it, while others have concerns.

Some say special needs students are not taken into consideration while others worry about the safety of high-risk teachers.

“It’s very frustrating because these kids should be protected, and they need to make some type of accommodation for it,” said parent Cortney Larson.

Teacher Ryan Fromoltz said, “I want the superintendent and the trustees to show that they actually care about their employees, because if you ask teachers, they don’t feel valued by the district.”

Today’s meeting started at 3 p.m.
