(Las Vegas, NV)  —  The federal government now has the Clark County School District’s application for $40 million in education funding.

Governor Brian Sandoval helped broker a deal between the district and the teachers union, allowing the Race to the Top application to go forward just hours before deadline.

If approved, the nation’s fifth-largest school district will get money for additional teachers and more help for at-risk students.

The Clark County Education Association had refused to sign off on the application.

An announcement on the grant could come by the end of the year.
