Schools Strive to FInd Efficiences, Ways to Improve Academic Output
Unlike other school districts across the country, Clark County, Nev., was bursting at the seams.
Over a 25-year period, the district saw an increase of 200,000 students with a rapidly changing set of demographics. Before school officials knew it, they found themselves operating the fifth-largest district in the United States. Each year, the district added as many as 16 new schools and hired thousands of new teachers and staff to meet the demands of their growing system.
