New home for special-needs students opens in Las Vegas

The Clark County (Nev.) School District has opened a new $18 million home for the Miller School, which serves about 125 special-needs students. It replaces a facility that was built as a traditional school in 1960. The building lacked sufficient technology and had frequent issues with its electrical, heating and cooling systems. The new school in Las Vegas is nearly twice as large as its predecessor. It has wider hallways to accommodate students with wheelchairs and special walking equipment. The 74,000-square-foot school also has a larger health office, a cooking room, courtyard space and large windows that let in daylight.
