Clark County School District Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara continued his district-wide listening tour Monday evening.

It's been days since he spoke about recent incidents involving weapons on or near CCSD campuses.

Jara reassured people in attendance that safety will continue to be addressed.

“School safety you know, I know that that's been a priority of the board and something that we have to continue to improve and get better,” Dr. Jara said.

Others took the meeting as an opportunity to speak out against the student to teacher ratios, claiming classroom sizes are becoming a problem.

“When you are in a portable with 50 kids you are not going to be able to read independently and focus,” one woman said.

A grandmother of 7 says she appreciates the discussions.

“Thank you for coming out to where the people are to hear from the people,” the woman said.

Jara says he's making it his mission to complete 100 discussions by the end of September.

“I know the challenges and I accepted the job because I believe in our kids and in the adults,” Dr. Jara said.

The next discussion will be Wednesday, September 19, 2018, at Rancho High School at 6:30 p.m.
