Focus on the Future for Kids

About the Initiative

The needs of our Clark County School District (CCSD) students are more pressing than ever as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.


In the summer of 2021, CCSD families and community members came together through the Focus on the Future For Kids: Community Input Process to answer several questions, including: What do we want for our CCSD schools? How can we utilize upcoming federal funds to jumpstart our long-term, shared community vision for our schools?


The input provided by approximately 13,000 stakeholders informed CCSD’s recovery priorities and helped us create a plan to ensure COVID-19 relief and recovery funds are directed where they are needed most, including $777 million in federal funds provided through the American Rescue Plan over the next three years.


CCSD committed to reporting on the use of these funds and will utilize this website to provide updates.
