Las Vegas School District Plans to Build 73 New Schools

Las Vegas is part of the 5th largest school system in the US. There is a new proposal to build much needed schools in the valley to accommodate new residents moving to Las Vegas as they rent or purchase homes. The proposal is a $9.5 billion 10-year plan to build 73 new schools.
"This represents the continued growth that is on the horizon" for Southern Nevada, Rulffes said. "It also represents a program that could be sustained without a tax increase." - RJ

Currently the district is building under a plan from 1998 for $3.5 billion. The board is expected to finalize the wording for the voter ballot in January.
