Clark County School District is set to receive the lion’s share of money handed out from the state to help struggling students.
The state of Nevada is delivering an extra $34 million to help poor students or those learning English. The funding was announced Thursday during the state Board of Education meeting.
Clark County is receiving all but $1.8 million of the state’s funds that will go to benefit 30,000 students statewide.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the money can be used by schools on programs and services specifically targeting the two categories of students who meet a set of criteria including standardized test scores, free and reduced lunch fees and attendance at a school that is not already receiving Victory or Zoom school funds.
