Clark County (Nev.) district to issue $400 million in bonds to construct and renovate schools

June 18, 2020
The Oversight Panel for School Facilities has approved the district's plan to build new campuses and upgrade existing ones.

The Clark County (Nev.) School District has been given the go-ahead to issue $400 million more in facilities bonds to help pay for new school buildings as well the maintenance of its aging facilities..

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the Oversight Panel for School Facilities, a state-mandated independent oversight panel, has approved the spending as part of the district’s 10-year authorization, granted in 2015, to issue bonds.

The district has refocused its facilities priorities on the maintenance and renovation of existing schools rather than the construction of new ones.

A revision to its capital improvement program in November stressed the need to address an estimated $6 billion in maintenance needs, particularly at the 290 schools that are over 20 years old.

The district’s modernization projects include building additions and  HVAC and roof replacements at numerous schools.

The district is also planning several replacement schools, including three elementary schools in east Las Vegas as well as a new elementary school on Broadbent Boulevard and East Russell Road, and two new Career Technical Academies set to open in the next four years.
