(Las Vegas, NV) — Up to 11 overcrowded elementary schools could be changing their schedules.

After a School Board meeting Thursday night, Clark County School Superintendent Dwight Jones says there is a good chance the district’s 3 most overcrowded elementary schools will switch to year-round schedules.

Those schools – Forbuss, Reedom and Wright – each have more than 1000 students in buildings designed to hold no more than 750. That means large class sizes, even with more than 8 portables classrooms on each of those campuses.

Some school board members say they’ve talked with parents of kids in overcrowded schools who don’t want a year-round schedule, but would prefer redrawing the attendance boundary lines to solve the problem.

A final decision could come as soon as today, or maybe Monday.
