CCSD Board of School Trustees meeting recap
LAS VEGAS – Agenda Item 3.01 – School Start Times Presentation
The Nevada State Board of Education is pursuing regulations for all school districts and charter schools in Nevada to set school start times after 8 a.m. The Clark County School District (CCSD) shared three scenarios available should the regulation proceed and the operational and unfunded financial burdens and impacts to families to comply with such a requirement:
- Uniform shifting of start and dismissal times by 60 minutes.
- Inversion of high school and elementary school start and dismissal times with a uniform 60-minute shift.
- Consolidating the current three-tier bell schedule to a two-tier bell schedule.

Agenda Item 3.02 & 3.03 – Public Hearing On and Possible Approval of the New Memorandum of Agreement between the Clark County School District and the Education Support Employees Association & Police Officers Association of the Clark County School District Regarding the Distribution of Funds Allocated through Senate Bill 231 (2023)
An agreement between CCSD and the Education Support Employees Association (ESEA), as well as the Police Officers Association of the Clark County School District (POA), was approved by trustees regarding the amount of funds allocated through Senate Bill 231 (SB 231). Approximately 33.4 percent, or roughly $58 million, of the funds will be allocated for eligible ESEA employees. Eligible employees who are school police officers will receive approximately 0.6 percent, about $1 million.
CCSD is pleased to memorialize MOAs with the Employee Support Education Association and POA for the funds provided by the Nevada Legislature in the last legislative session allocated in SB 231.
“Our hardworking employees deserve all the compensation we can provide them within our budgetary means,” said Superintendent Jesus F. Jara. “With these agreements, we will go to the Interim Finance Committee (IFC) to advocate with our bargaining partners on behalf of additional employee compensation according to SB 231.”
