Carson city – GOV Steve Sisolak accuses the Clark County school district superintendent Jesus Jara’s “report of the community he represents,” and the two leaders disagree on proposal, considered during the current special session of the legislature of Nevada.

Assembly bill 2 would allow school districts with more than 100,000 students at year end the balance of the local school walls as unrestricted funds for the current fiscal year to strengthen the curriculum, the loss of money. The bill was heard on Saturday as lawmakers deal with a budget deficit caused by the crisis coronavirus 1.2 billion dollars.

State officials said the bill was postponed at the request of CCSD, although Jara on Monday denied that it proposed bill. Sisolak called the Hara is unfair and says “Clark County students, employees and members of their families deserve better.”

“I can’t sit and be silent in the superintendent Jara is trying to unfairly blame and not take responsibility for their actions. Enough” Sisolak said in the statement. “Although I’m not surprised, I am incredibly disappointed that again the foreman’hara tried to mislead the community he represents and to blame others in order to avoid the consequences of their wrong decisions.”

Superintendent of public instruction Nevada Jhone Ebert said’hare disrespect elected officials and “all CCSD community”.

“As a leader in the field of education, he must be an example for our children. Blatantly changing the truth is not only a bad example, but it is a disservice to educators, students and families he represents,” said Ebert.

Jara is not present in the bill in Saturday session of the Assembly, and instead called on during the public comment discussion to tell the officials he didn’t want to bill in advance.

Speaker Jason Frierson, D-Las Vegas, confirmed that the CCSD was “only” asked that the bill will be included in the agenda. Frierson, who was clearly irritated, says, to ask the district was withdrawn two hours before the Declaration of the session was published, which was “too late.”

“You can’t light a firecracker, and then run just before it goes,” said Frierson. He called it “unfortunate” that Jara had responded to the bill for public comment.

“I don’t believe that there will be no reason to really delve into all the details of Assembly bill 2, but I want to make it very clear who initiated this request, and I think it failed to respond to the public comment forum, in contrast to the assumption of responsibility,” continued Frierson.

‘hara released a statement Tuesday evening that do not directly respond Sisolak, who was released in a joint statement with Ebert, but stressed that he wanted to work with government leaders and “to get to a place of true cooperation.” Hara expressed “regret” that the conversation was “deterred” from education, and said the focus should be redirected to students.

“Together with management, we want to find ways to implement a comprehensive plan for the use of the Federal care act … means to liquidate the digital inequality and the implementation of effective distance learning programs for all students, as well as COVID-19 testing for all our employees,” Jara said in a statement. “We are ready to continue the discussion. Our children are counting on us to get it right”.

On Monday, Hara wrote, “the government needs to invest in our children! Clark County has the lowest urban school system is financed in America. COVID-19 put the magnifying glass in the injustice created by the leadership in our capital.”

This was not the first time the Governor and Jara has faced, including in August last year, when Sisolak was the data in the course of a dispute with the district and the teachers Union in contract negotiations.

Sisolak and legislative initiative was criticized CCSD has not finished the budget hole legislators after they spent months developing the budget in Carson city, with Sisolak called the situation “a mess.”

“To get into the room, lock the door and find out,” Sisolak told officials CCSD last summer.

Conflict may be exacerbated.

The legislature is considering $ 190 million. in cuts to K-12 education in the special session to help overcome the budget deficit. In addition, the district asked for $85 million under the new funding under its plan of opening after COVID-19 closure in mid-March. Additional funding is needed to provide teachers with means of individual protection, transport and additional help with the disinfection of the campus.
