Overcrowding plagues CCSD schools

LAS VEGAS -- On this first day of school, the Clark County School District is experiencing some growing pains.

CCSD projects it will serve an estimated 320,000 students this school year, breaking last year's record enrollment of more than 315,000 students.

The hardest hit campuses are elementary schools, which are almost 18 percent over-capacity on average.

Campuses are getting crowded and everyone from administrators to parents to kids is learning lessons on escalating enrollment.

It is the first day of school at Ries Elementary School, which is serving the booming southwest valley.

Brenna Monaghan has been coming here since kindergarten. On Monday, she began fifth grade.

"I actually know a lot of my friends here still, so that's good," Brenna said.

But Brenna's final year will be different because Ries Elementary is now a year-round school.

Driving You Crazy: Crosswalk at Flamingo and Cameron

LAS VEGAS - A viewer says a crosswalk at Flamingo Road and Cameron Street is not clearly marked, making the area dangerous for pedestrians.

There is no street light in this area, but there are signs that warn drivers of pedestrians crossing. Many drivers, however, travel along this stretch of road at approximately 45- 50 miles per hour and do not see the pedestrians.

The road is also wide, making it less likely that drivers will see pedestrians as they cross the street.

Representatives with the Regional Transportation Commission say they are working on this problem with Clark County Public Works. The area is part of the Flamingo Corridor Improvements Project, which is going to include approximately 86 street upgrades, new transit shelters, signal improvements and more.
