11 Aug Ribbon-cutting ceremonies held for Berkley & Bell Elementary Schools
The Clark County School District (CCSD) held ribbon-cutting ceremonies on Aug. 11 to commemorate the opening of Shelley Berkley Elementary School, one of six new schools set to open Aug. 14 and Rex Bell Elementary School, an existing school that was rebuilt. These events gave the community a first look at new school features including the new parent center at Bell Elementary School, and classrooms and library at Berkley Elementary School. Funds for these projects were made possible by Nevada legislators through the passage of SB 207 in 2015, which allows for 10 years of bonding authority for new school construction and renovation projects and is expected to provide $4.1 billion during this period.
