School District Passes Final Budget; No Raises for Teachers

The Clark County School District has unanimously approved it's final budget for the 2019-2020 school year.

The $2.5 billion budget is balanced, which is good news...but it does not include a raise for teachers that was promised by Governor Steve Sisolak. School officials say they are about $120 million short of being able to pay for a 3% raise for educators as well as a 2% step increase and other initiatives promised by the Governor in January.
