Live And Local With Kevin Wall 03/04/13: Year Round Schools, Gun And Ammo Tax, And The Echelon Project

CBS LAS VEGAS-Clark County’s School Board has spent months working its way toward a solution for overcrowding in the elementary schools. Two options are viewed as the most viable.  One is rezoning, which isn’t popular with the families who might end up reassigned. The other is a shift from the traditional nine-month school calendar to a year-round schedule. The Clark County School Board picked three schools in the valley that are switching from the nine month school year to a year round schedule.  Do you think this change will help overcrowding in elementary schools?  Callers tell us if this solution will work at these schools.
