LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
The Clark County School District will have a public hearing Wednesday night at 5 p.m. to go over the tentative budget for the 2012-2013 school year.
It’s been a battle between the teachers’ union and the district, and about 1,000 teacher layoffs are possible.
In early May an arbitrator ruled in favor of the teachers who were seeking pay raises, but the district has repeatedly threatened layoffs. The announcement of specific layoffs may come during this public session.
Superintendent Dwight Jones has said in the past the school board may be faced with laying off about 1,350 positions. Either way, it appears pink slips for at least some teachers will become a reality.
CCSD had previously tentatively approved its nearly $2 billion budget, then the teachers won the ruling, which will force revisions.
The final budget plan must be set and sent off to the state for approval by June 8.
FOX5 will bring you updates on the budget battle tonight at 5, 10 and 11 p.m.
