Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The discussion will continue Wednesday about overcrowded schools in the Las Vegas Valley.
More than twenty elementary schools in the Clark County School District may be affected by rezoning.
Students from the schools in the southwest and southeast parts of the valley were sent home with a flier recently, informing them of the possibility of being moved to a different school next year.
Meetings are being held this week to give parents in those area a chance to let their voices be heard about possible rezoning.
The commission says that it would like opinions from as many parents as possible so that they can make the right decision.
Since voters did not pass the capitol improvement fund in November, CCSD has been scrambling to figure out what to do with an influx of elementary school students at the already crowded schools in the district.
There are three options on the table -- portables, rezoning and year-round schools.
The school district may decide on a combination of the options.
A decision is scheduled to be made by CCSD in early March.
Wednesday night's meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the Silverado High School theater, 1650 Silver Hawk Ave.
The schools to be discussed include: R. M. Bryan, Cartwright/Gehring, Diskin, Forbuss, Frias, Gray, Hayes, Hill/Wiener Jr., Hummel, Kim, Reedom, Ries, Rogers, Steele, Stuckey, Tanaka, and Wright Elementary Schools
