10 CCSD schools made year-round to ease overcrowding

Posted: Updated:

Clark County School District Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky on Thursday evening announced 10 more elementary schools will move to a year-round schedule in order to alleviate classroom overcrowding.

The schools moving to the year-round calendar for the 2014-15 school year are as follows:

  • Clyde C. Cox Elementary School
  • Lois Craig Elementary School
  • Laura Dearing Elementary School
  • Mark L.Fine Elementary School
  • Robert E. Lake Elementary School
  • Aldeane Comito Ries Elementary School
  • Bertha Ronzone Elementary School
  • Dr. C. Owen Roundy Elementary School
  • Gwendolyn Woolley Elementary School
  • Elaine Wynn Elementary School

"The decision was made after careful consideration of looking at zoning options, growth in each neighborhood and looking to maintain them on a nine-month calendar, which is always our goal," Skorkowsky said.

In addition, Skorkowsky announced the district's Zoom Schools will be extended an additional 17 days, starting this June. Craig and Ronzone elementaries will be extended 17 school days this year as well, also starting in June. 

"Converting schools to a year-round calendar or rezoning attendance zones are only temporary, Band-Aid solutions," Skorkowsky said. "We're going to have to build additional schools to accommodate the growth we are seeing."

Originally, 39 schools were on the list to possibly go year-round. The remaining 29 schools will now be considered for possible rezoning at a school board meeting on Feb. 26.
