LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — During the Clark County School District (CCSD) Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday, the board voted 7-0 vote to approve full-time distance learning for the beginning of the school year.
Recently, parents took a survey regarding the best education model for their family. During the meeting, CCSD School Board of Trustees went over the results and the new opening recommendation.
The Board added provisions to receive health and wellness updates every 30 days before determining a return to hybrid or face-to-face instruction. Where applicable, schools in rural communities can return to face-to-face or hybrid education if they follow all state and health and safety guidelines and meet certain health and safety criteria.

The ‘Reopening Our Schools’ plan also allows for hybrid telecommuting for district staff and licensed professionals where and when possible. The recommendation to begin the school year with full-time distance education when students return on August 24 was based on statistical data and trends in Clark County regarding the impact of COVID-19 and the information provided by local health officials.
