Advisory Committee approves preliminary reorganization plan, 27 revisions for CCSD

The Advisory Committee unanimously approved the preliminary reorganization plan and 27 revisions for the Clark County School District.

The committee spent numerous hours Tuesday in a meeting trying to figure out how to reorganize CCSD.

Under the proposed plan, each school would be independently run, and instead of the superintendent, the principal, a team of teachers, and parents would be in charge of hiring and budgeting.

There's no concrete answer on exactly how much it will cost to make the transition.

"It will put pressure on the legislature to address inadequate funding for the school system next session," said Michael Roberson,, Nevada State Senator for District 20. "We do need to invest more in education in Southern Nevada."

Some of the amendments also state that parents who join organizational teams won't be protected from lawsuits. Plus, only middle school and high school students will be able to join organizational teams... Read More

Rock climbing becoming a draw for Las Vegas

It's not just entertainment on the Las Vegas Strip drawing people to southern Nevada anymore. Outdoor activities like rock climbing are bringing more people to the valley, according to an economic report just released.

"It's really fun because you tend to get into the zone sometimes and forget how high up you are and what you're doing," said Matt Christie, a climber.

He got into rock climbing about two years and likes to spend time training at Origin Climbing & Fitness in Henderson.

He hopes to reach new heights at Red Rock Canyon when the weather starts to cool down in about a month.

"The rock there, to me, is my favorite kind of rock," he said. "It's got this awesome kind of sandstone where it's really super smooth, but also really grippy which is a real hard thing to find."

He's not alone, according to an economic report. The Mountain Gear Red Rock Rendezvous three-day event helped bring in $1 million to the local economy this year... Read More
