School district leaders are responding to a violent video that shows a girl being punched in the head repeatedly by another girl inside a Las Vegas High School classroom full of students.
“Violent acts, assaults, and bullying will not be tolerated in the Clark County School District, and those who choose to engage in these activities will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Superintendent Jesus F. Jara in an emailed statement.
The email included a statement from Board of Trustee President Irene Cepeda:
“The CCSD Board of School Trustees and superintendent take every incident of violence seriously, regardless of who commits the violence. As recently as last Wednesday (3. Focus: 2024 Priority Area Ensure Students and staff are safe and students are engaged at school), at our joint work session, the trustees and superintendent reiterated their commitment to safety in schools and ensuring schools are places where students and staff feel safe, and education can occur.”
