The Clark County School District (CCSD) held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Jan. 9 to commemorate the opening of Don and Dee Snyder Elementary School at 8951 W. Ford Ave. in Las Vegas. It is one of seven new schools that opened during the 2017-18 school year. The ceremony gave families and the community a brief look at the new school. Funds for the new schools were made possible by Nevada legislators through the passage of SB 207 in 2015, which allows for 10 years of bonding authority for new school construction and renovation projects and is expected to provide $4.1 billion during this period. CCSD will open four additional schools at the start of the 2018-19 school year. For more information about CCSD’s Capital Improvement Program, visit cip.ccsd.net.
