Clark County School District began in 1956 when the Nevada Legislature mandated consolidation of all state school districts into 17 County school districts. This change means that 14 separate school districts in Clark County would become part of the new Clark County School District. R. Guild Gray, superintendent at time of former Clark County School District No. 2, state before the Board of School Trustees meeting on February 1 1956 that the District would be larger than political subdivision in the state of Nevada. Gray believes the District would be larger than the state highway department with 1 300 employees and an annual budget of 7 250 000. Prior to 1956, each of individual school districts in the County ran independent of each other, serving their respective cities and / or CDPs. When the District began in 1956, enrollment was just over 20 000 and Clark County had about 103 000 residents. The District will continue to face challenges in coming years. Funding was its biggest challenge and has been for many years as it contends with explosive population growth.

Growth

Due to the large number of families moving into the Las Vegas area, school district saw tremendous growth in student enrollment from the 1990s through 2007. Several bond issues were approved by voters to help the district deal with this growth. This has resulted in many new schools being construct. In some years, as many as 16 schools have open. 320 400 students enrol during the 2015-2016 school year. This results in very high demand for teachers to staff classrooms. As a result, districts had to be creative in finding teachers to hire, including recruiting teachers from other states and other countries. In 2008, statewide recession impacted the district. In 2012, voters failed to pass the school construction bond. By 2014, district was overwhelmed with new students as the economy recover. Elementary schools were operating at 117. 6 % of planned capacity, with some schools at almost 200 %. If the 2016 bond passes, officials hope new schools might be built by 2020.
