Nevada school board approves up to $14m in new budget cuts

Posted September 15

— A southern Nevada school board approved up to $13.9 million in new cuts as it grapples with a budget shortfall of up to $60 million.

The Clark County School Board, which serves a district covering about 8,000 square miles (21,000 square kilometers), expects the new round of cuts approved on Thursday will save the district about $7 million to $13.9 million.

The cuts come from the elimination of more than 272 positions and various services.

Schools are expected to make a combined $17.4 million in cuts to individual budgets as well.

Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky says they have been working hard on "trying to prevent more cuts to schools."

The board approved $43 million in cuts last month, and it's likely to approve more at the end of this month.
