The Las Vegas City Council gave the green light Wednesday for a new public high school to support students overcoming drug addiction.
The Clark County School Board unanimously approved the school last month, which is designed to give about 100 students an environment structured around recovery. The council put $100,000 toward funding the school, which will be located at the former Biltmore Continuation High School near Las Vegas Boulevard and Washington Avenue.
The school board already allocated more than $800,000 for renovations. The money from the city council will mostly go toward beautification efforts, such as painting, a learning garden, and a medication center.
