Nevada State College has broken ground on $61 9 million school of education building on its Henderson campus.

KSNV-TV reports that the 65,000-square-foot Glenn and Ande Christensen School of Education Building will have a speech-language pathology clinic and an early childhood education center, along with class and office space.

State lawmakers allocated about $55 million last year for the building in an effort to recruit and graduate more prospective teachers for Nevada's  schools.

"This is going to do a tremendous amount to help get teachers into the pipeline, to fuel the pipeline that we need to have more teachers educated in pre-K through higher education," says Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, who was on hand for the groundbreaking.

Carpenter Sellers Del Gatto Architects, which is designing the project, says the building will consist of classrooms, hands-on learning spaces, speech language pathology spaces, and faculty offices.

The building also will have a preschool with an innovative educational environment in which to train new preschool teachers.
