The Clark County School District employs more than 44,000 people, according to 2017-2018 reporting, and has an annual budget of more that $4 Billion, with more than 320,000 students. In 2018, the highest paid employee at CCSD was Superintendent¬† William Patrick Skorkowsky, costing tax payer $363,263.54 in total compensation. According to CCSD’s 2018-2019 budget, they have 30,302 employees and 16,911 teachers.

Every year, for the past 19 years, Nevada elected politicians who claim they need to raise taxes to raise Nevada’s dead last National Education Rankings. In 2009 Nevada politicians doubled business taxes from $250 per year to $500 per year. In 2015, under Governor Sandoval and a Republican controlled legislature, they created the Commerce Tax, $1.3 Billion, the largest tax increase in the history of Nevada meant to “fix education”. But this year the legislature wants more taxes for education.

If one divides $4 Billion by 320,000 students we see CCSD is actually spending $12,500 per student or $375,000 for a class of 30 students. The average teacher in CCSD earns $48,000 a year.

CCSD has resisted any serious attempted to audit their books for years.
