The Clark County School District has decided to institute a restructuring plan for five low performing schools in the district. Under the plan, all staff members must reapply for their jobs and only half of them are eligible to be rehired. CCSD leaders say the five schools, Chaparral, Mojave and Western high school, as well as Elizondo and Hancock elementary schools, are long overdue for restructuring because of low performance. The restructuring is part of a federal grant program aimed at improving schools. We talk to the principal of one of the schools and a CCSD administrator about how restructuring will work.
