LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- By the end of this month, the impasse over contracts between the Clark County School District and teachers should be over.

An arbitrator is expected to make a decision on the matter soon. That decision is binding and cannot be appealed.

The School District said if it wins arbitration, around 1,000 teaching jobs would be saved but teachers would have to pay back the raises they've earned from tenure and continued education.

That's because the contract would cover this current school year and the next.

"We're very committed to making sure this happens in the least possible way as possible,” said School District spokeswoman Amanda Fulkerson. “We don't have an exact figure yet, but we're looking at spanning this out for a long period of time. So we're taking small amounts of money from checks."

The teachers union says teachers have earned and deserve their pay.

The union questions CCSD's numbers and whether layoffs are necessary.
