2013-2014 Work Sessions and Regular Board Meetings
Public Hearing at Board Meeting
The Board of School Trustees recognizes that its deliberative process benefits greatly from public input and perspective. Those wishing to address the Board may sign up to speak by calling the Board Office at 799-1072 during regular business hours and at least 3 hours prior to the scheduled start of the meeting. Alternatively, speakers may sign up in person immediately prior to the beginning of the meeting. Prior to each agenda item being voted on, members of the public are allowed to speak on the item after the Board's discussion and prior to their vote. Since approval of the consent agenda may be approved in one motion, members of the public wishing to speak on a consent agenda item may speak prior to the vote. Those members of the public who are speaking on 4 or more items will be allowed a total of 10 minutes. Customarily, speakers will be called in the order in which they signed up. No person may sign up for another individual. No person may yield his or her time to another person. Generally, a person wishing to speak on agenda items will be allowed 3 minutes to address the Board.

School Name Committee
The School Name Committee is scheduled to meet on Tuesday, January 8, 2013.
One of the highest honors bestowed upon an individual who has made an everlasting impact in the Clark County community is to become a school namesake. The motivation for this naming opportunity is to honor educators, students, and community leaders of the highest character, while providing Clark County school children with role models, and a sense of the rich history and diversity of the Southern Nevada community.
The Clark County School District School Name Committee will consider the naming of a new transportation center and portions of District facilities (including libraries, gyms, stadiums, conference rooms, etc.) Clark County School District Policy 7223-Naming of Schools and Education-Related Facilities, outlines the criteria for naming District facilities and portions of facilities, the selection process, and the make-up of the School Name Committee. If you wish to submit an application for consideration, please download the Facility Name Application. Nominations should be submitted with all required supporting documentation to Clark County School District, Community and Government Relations, 5100 West Sahara Avenue, Las Vegas, NV, 89146 by December 21, 2012.

Community Linkage Meeting, October 13, 2011
2011 Redistricting of Trustee's Election Boundaries
School district trustees approve redistricting plan
Tremendous growth and population shifts during the past decade created quite a challenge for Clark County School District trustees to work with staff and develop a comprehensive redistricting plan that would address as many community concerns as possible. Following several months of discussion and input, a plan was approved at a special board meeting on August 22, 2011.
The redistricting, which was required by state law following the results of the 2010 census, will result in some residents being represented by a new trustee, while others will have the same trustee as their designated board member. The new districts go into effect immediately and bring the population more in alignment so each trustee represents a similar number of constituents.
The link to the attached map identifies the new boundaries that were approved.
The newly approved districts include the following student counts/population counts:
|Trustee||District||Student numbers||Total population numbers|
|Deanna L. Wright||A||41,306||288,050|
|Dr. Linda E. Young||C||46,322||269,116|
|Dr. René Cantú Jr.||E||37,483||266,209|
|Erin E. Cranor||G||42,289||280,014|
Anyone who would like to contact their respective board member can do so by calling the board office at 799-1072.
