15 Jan CCSD adjusts school times next year to maintain transportation services
The Clark County School District (CCSD) is committed to providing consistent on-time transportation to eligible students.
Because bus driver shortages have impacted every sector across the country, and to transport students to and from school more efficiently, CCSD has adjusted school start and end times for the 2022-2023 school year, which starts on Aug. 8, 2022. The first transition will impact the upcoming 2022-2023 school year by making slight changes to start and end times at more than half of the school campuses to improve on-time rates for all bus routes. At most schools, the adjustment is less than 30 minutes, impacting 65 bus routes.

“Getting students to school on time is vital to student achievement,” CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara said. “The District is committed to maintaining bus services for our eligible students, and these changes will improve transportation service reliability and timeliness.”
School districts nationwide continue to experience substantial bus driver shortages, forcing some districts to cut services to a large percentage of their eligible students.
By adjusting the start and end times for students, CCSD will be able to offer the same level of service with increased on-time rates and improved efficiency through route consolidation.
CCSD Transportation provides bus service to approximately 125,000 students on more than 1,500 routes. CCSD employs more than 1,300 drivers and maintains the largest owned/operated school bus fleet in the nation.
