The deficit of school teachers for this fall is getting smaller in Las Vegas. Clark County has been working diligently to make up ground and fill the spots needed for many of the district's schools. New schools added because of the city growth have added strain to the staff.
Also, increases in the cost of living, including housing prices, has made it more difficult for teachers to reside in the valley. The district has had to recruit from many parts of the country to fill the spots needed. They get closer and closer to filling the voids before the school year begins.
