LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – The Clark County School District is seeking community input regarding safety and security at schools in the district.
On Wednesday, April 27, SDCC will host a Facebook Live event for the community, teachers, parents, and students at 5:30 p.m.
The CCSD asks members of the community for their questions and ideas on the subject of safety and security.
The online event comes after several cases of school violence were reported in the district.
Incidents of violence between students and teachers have also been in the spotlight as recently as April 19, when three students in separate cases were arrested for assaulting their teachers or a member of staff.
On April 7, a 16-year-old student was arrested for assaulting a teacher at Eldorado High School.
The school’s teachers met with union representatives the following day to ask for their support.
At the time, Marie Neisess, the president of the Clark County Education Association, spoke to 8 News Now saying, among other things, “Is anyone going to die at the hands of a student, whether they’re another student or a staff member? We have immediate interventions to know what to do.
The Education Support Staff Association recently held a school safety rally at Eldorado High School in hopes of shedding light on the increase in violence in schools.
The CCSD has recorded more than 5,000 incidents of violence on school campuses since the start of the 2021-2022 school year.
