14 Sep CFO Jason Goudie discusses the CCSD budget situation
A new Community Budget Advisory Committee will meet for the first time on Friday, Sept. 22, at 2 p.m. to ask questions, provide input and suggest a direction for future budget priorities at the Clark County School District.
CCSD invited parents, students, staff and community members to take a survey to get input regarding the budget shortfall of up to $60 million. View the CCSD Budget Survey Results.
CCSD is working to address a budget shortfall of $50 to $60 million due to increasing employee costs and other increasing expenditures. The budget shortfall is caused by higher-than-expected expenses, and lower-than-expected revenues in both the 2016-17 and 2017-18 budgets, totaling approximately $52 million.
