The overcrowding at Clark County schools is a major problem but has several solutions.

The proposal by the Clark County School District to go back to a year-round school schedule is a partial element in solving overcrowding.

The second is to encourage home-schooling via the Internet, which would be beneficial to learning and ease pressure on on-site facilities.

The final solution is to have more portable classrooms available for instruction, considering that further school construction won’t happen anytime soon for budget reasons.

Overcrowding of the School District, which is one of the largest nationwide, isn’t an easy crisis or one that will be solved quickly. But by using a combination of all the above solutions, it can be done.
