State legislators invested $39 million in Clark County's Zoom Schools, fourteen campuses with high numbers of English Language Learners, to provide services to increase literacy. And recently, officials from the school district testified to lawmakers about where that money was going. The state expects big returns on its investment. But the district may have to tinker with the program to get the best results. So when will district officials know if the Zoom Schools are working? And how will they measure the success of the program?

GUESTS

Danielle Miller, coordinator of Zoom Schools, Clark County School District
