Clark County School District Board of Trustees
What is the Board of Trustees & what are they responsible for? The CCSD Trustees are publicly elected decision-makers for the school district. They are responsible for providing oversight to the Superintendent and establishing District-wide policy. Trustees are accountable to work with their communities to improve student achievement.
How often does the Board of Trustees meet? Trustees meet twice per month (second and fourth Thursdays) at 5pm at the Edward A. Greer Education Center (Board Room): 2832 E. Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89121.
Can community members engage at Trustee Meetings? Decision-making bodies benefit greatly from hearing public input and multiple perspectives. Community members can sign up to speak after the agenda has been posted– by calling the Board Office at (702) 799-1072 at least 3 hours before the scheduled meeting, or signing up in-person at the beginning of the meeting. Prior to each agenda item being voted on, speakers can share their perspective after the Board’s discussion and prior to the vote.

Clark County School District Board of Trustees Meeting
What happened at this meeting?
Members of the public provided testimony to Trustees in response to contract negotiations between the district and the teachers union, the Clark County Educators Association (CCEA).
The union rejected the proposal of a 3% pay increase, a 2% step increase for eligible employees, and a 4% increase in healthcare contributions. The union plans to continue negotiations for retroactive compensation for teacher professional growth plans.
Due to safety concerns, Trustees decided to end the meeting following the initial public comment period.
No other board business was discussed during this meeting. A new meeting will be scheduled for regular board business.
