Clark County School District officials face a busy summer as they prepare for in-person classes — and continuing distance learning — when school resumes on Aug. 9.

Coming off a year that saw students learn at home, at school, and a blend of the two because of the pandemic, the district is now studying the place distance learning has in the educational process.

The district also needs to study ways to digest the unexpected $500 million  in public education funding provided by the Legislature.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
