As the student population in Southern Nevada grows the Clark County School District (CCSD) must look ahead and plan for sustainable infrastructure that will ensure student achievement for every student. CCSD’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is made possible through bond funds that allow the district to address student growth and all the areas it impacts. Bond funds cannot be used for daily operation costs, they can only be applied to CIP projects such as building new schools, school replacements, phased replacements, renovations, modernizations, technology upgrades and transportation.
In comparison to other states across the nation, Nevada is a state that historically has not provided assistance for school construction and modernization projects. Seeking voter approval to pass bond questions has been the only feasible way of obtaining financing to build schools at the pace needed.
