Phase 3 Recap

The CCSD Use of Funds Plan was approved by the Nevada Department of Education on March 18, 2022 and CCSD subsequently began implementation. The District submitted a revised ESSER III use of funds plan that was approved on September 1, 2022.


CCSD is implementing a range of projects with the ARP ESSER III funding meant to accelerate recovery efforts. So far, the district is proud to share:


CCSD ESSER III investments are already impacting schools, students, and families.

  • Every CCSD Elementary School was allocated an ESSER III budget to provide academic, social-emotional, and behavioral support to address the individual needs of students.
  • Every student in the District has access to a laptop or tablet and a variety of online curriculum and instructional resources, Internet access support, summer learning opportunities and newly adopted Science and social-emotional learning curriculum.
  • Every student in the District has access to a wide variety of community wraparound supports, as well as one-on-one access to mental health services and tutoring.


The Clark County School District is heavily investing in educators to further pandemic recovery.

  • As a result of nearly $70 Million invested to recruit and retain top teachers to Clark County, the number of classroom vacancies has drastically reduced.
  • Teachers have access to research-based professional learning in literacy and science instruction and can earn a master’s degree in English Language Learning at no cost to them.


The Clark County School District is fulfilling its promise of transparency and accountability.

  • The District’s spending plan was informed by over 13,000 stakeholders.
  • Regular spending and implementation updates are provided to the public and the Board of School Trustees and are posted at future.ccsd.net. 


The Clark County School District is on track to make impactful investments on time.

Spending progress is ahead of the targeted spending trajectory over time.

  • All projects are being funded in alignment with federal requirements and in service of pandemic recovery.

Phase 1 Recap


In summer 2021, CCSD launched Phase 1 of this work to partner with the community on a plan for pandemic recovery.


Partner organizations from across the community collected input from their members and the people they serve in a series of community input conversations. We are grateful to the 80+ community organizations, and approximately 13,000 individual stakeholders, who rallied together to reimagine school for our children.


With a goal of convening a representative cross-section of our diverse community, three community members from each CCSD Region were selected to serve on a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) to help synthesize the input received. The CAC met to review the community input and developed a synthesis report that captures the topics and themes they observed.


Read the CAC’s final report in English (PDF) and Spanish (PDF). Meet the members of the CAC here.


We are pleased to share the results of this process in CCSD’s Use of Funds Plan.
