LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Starting Thursday, Dec. 10, Clark County Television, also known as CCTV, will start airing the Clark County School Board meetings. CCTV will air the school board meetings starting at 5 p.m. to provide greater transparency and a larger audience for its activities.
“We are excited to have our meetings going live on Channel 4, as we think it will be great for the community to have more access to important discussions about school issues,” said Clark County School Board Trustee Linda Cavazos.
Having the CCSD board meetings air on CCTV is something Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom says he’s been working toward since 2009 when he served as a member of the Nevada Assembly when he pushed legislation to make it happen.
“It’s important that residents have the ability to watch these proceedings on television,” said Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom, a vocal advocate for the move, “especially now during the pandemic as they make important decisions regarding local education. Airing these meetings will provide greater transparency and give residents a deeper understanding of the issues faced by our school district.”
“The Clark County School District Board of School Trustees appreciates the continued support of and partnership with the Clark County Commissioners,” said CCSD Board of School Trustees President Lola Brooks. “I want to personally thank Trustee Linda Cavazos and Commissioner Tick Segerblom for helping drive this work during an especially challenging time. The Board of School Trustees is always excited when new avenues to increase transparency become available and allow us to keep the public informed.”
