Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Three elementary schools in the Clark County School District will shift to a year-round schedule next year, Superintendent Dwight Jones announced Friday.

The schools that will go year-round are Robert L. Forbuss Elementary School, Carolyn S. Reedom Elementary School and William V. Wright Elementary School.

District officials say the year-round schedule will ease overpopulation.

The new schedule will begin in August of this year.

District officials acknowledge the decision was a tough one to make, but believe it's in the best interest of the students impacted.

Superintendent Jones said he doesn't think the year-round schedule will be permanent.
