Officials: Move would yield $2.5 million for use by other schools

A decline in the number of students sent to behavioral schools in Las Vegas could free up around $2.5 million for other schools in the Clark County School District.

The district is hoping to save the money by closing three schools: Biltmore Continuation, Morris Behavior and Southwest Behavior. All three schools are operating with a bare-bones staff overseeing a small number of students, according to officials.

Since about five years ago, the number of students referred for disciplinary problems has dropped drastically. In 2011, schools sent around 4,695 students to behavioral schools. Now, that number is around 2,435.
