(Las Vegas, NV) –Being a finalist is normally a good thing. Not so in the realm of turnaround schools.

To fast track academic achievement, improve school climate, increase graduation rates and give every child a quality education, the Clark County School District designated Cimarron-Memorial High School, Sunrise Mountain High School and Elizabeth Wilhelm Elementary School as the District’s newest turnaround schools.

Each school was selected for turnaround status after district officials reviewed each school’s two School Performance Framework rankings, graduation rate, student growth data and conducted in-person interviews on the campus.

And there will be casualties according to CCSD’S Head of Communications Amanda Fulkerson. “There will be new principals for sure and some teachers. Up to ten at the elementary school and up to 12 at the high schools.”

Principals for the three schools will be named in the coming weeks.
