LAS VEGAS (AP) - Ten Clark County elementary schools will move to a year-round schedule next school year to ease overcrowding.

Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky said Thursday that the schools will join three schools that are already on the schedule.

The district is experiencing an enrollment surge and has gained 6,000 students in the past two years. Skorkowsky says the district would have to build 23 new schools in order to bring the other schools down to capacity.

The sites going to a year-round model are Clyde C. Cox, Lois Craig, Laura Dearing, Mark L. Fine, Robert E. Lake, Aldeane Comito Ries, Bertha Ronzone, Dr. C. Owen, Gwendolyn Woolley, and Elaine Wynn schools.

Skorkowsky called the schedule changes a "Band-Aid" solution, saying what the district really needs is more money to build schools.
