Police looking to question students involved in high school brawl

A massive brawl between two rival high schools was caught on video, so now police officers are looking for all the students connected to the fight.

It happened inside a Raising Canes and an In-N-Out Burger near Ann Road and U.S. 95. The graphic images were taken Friday night after a football game between Arbor View and Centennial high schools.

Employees from both restaurants told 8 News NOW that the area is a popular hangout spot for high schoolers on game night, but they've never seen anything like Friday's brawl happen. People in the community are shocked.

"How just a simple game -- a simple football game can cause a big riot," said Rosie Dietz, graduated from Centennial High School. "It's just ridiculous."

Investigators are relying on the cell phone video to identify the students responsible for the fight. On the video, students are seen punching and kicking one another.

Dietz claims she knows someone who participated in the fight... Read More

Nevada Supreme Court ruling brings ESA program to a standstill

The Nevada Supreme Court has put a halt to the controversial ESA program. However, both sides of the argument claimed victory Thursday.

The court found Nevada's Education Savings Account program doesn't violate the state constitution however the funding under the bill that created the program is in question.

Justices issued a 4-2 ruling on Thursday calling for a permanent injunction on the program, which was on hold on a temporary basis.

The ruling says the program authorized last spring by the Nevada Legislature did not have its own dedicated funding source and is unlawfully drawing on money allocated for public schools in the state's Distributive School Account. It would have allowed parents to use public school dollars to pay for private school tuition... Read More

Nev. Board of Education unanimously approves reorganization plan

The Nevada Board of Education has voted unanimously in favor of a dramatic plan to shift the balance of power from a central office to the more than 300 schools in the Clark County School District.

Proponents of the reorganization plan approved Thursday say it's important for Nevada to act boldly, arguing the status quo hasn't improved the state's bottom-ranking public school system.

The plan fine-tuned over the past 14 months calls for an "empowerment" model that gives principals and their volunteer boards control over about 80 percent of the money flowing to their schools.

Critics scrutinized the details of the plan, asking whether it will distribute resources equitably. A panel of 12 legislators still must approve the final regulations that passed Thursday. That vote is expected on Sept. 9... Read More
