There are numerous topics on the agenda but one that is expected to be discussed is learning from home. Distance learning is supposed to start today for Clark County students, but not everyone is ready.

Teachers hope the school board will lay out guidance about how it’s supposed to work. Over the weekend, most teachers received more information about their duties with regard to distance learning.

Teachers are required to essentially clock in and out at normal school times. They must be available to students during the school day and try to take attendance to some degree.

Over the weekend, state superintendent Jhone Ebert said state testing requirements will be waived. She set a deadline today for districts to sort out distance learning.

The meetings are normally held at the Clark County Education Center by Flamingo Road and McLeod Drive but everyone practicing social distancing, there may be some changes.
