The Clark County teachers union says it will increase member dues to fund a multi-million dollar campaign to persuade voters to approve a tax increase to provide at least $1 billion more annually for public education in Nevada.
Despite receiving additional funding from the state, the Clark County School District says it still faces a budget shortfall for the coming year. CCSD officials say that shortfall could be between $17 million and $18 million.

The Clark County School District is facing financial decisions after a one-time offer of a 3 percent payment to all employee bargaining groups was undercut by a District Court decision to uphold a $51.5 million arbitration award to teachers.
