LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Clark County School District plans to hire 2,000 teachers to accommodate growing student enrollment and backfill for teachers who are resigning or retiring.

The district says it will hire about 500 support staffers, including bus drivers and classroom aides. Officials say they're also hoping to ramp up their pool of substitute teachers.

Part of the demand comes from new state mandates that require smaller kindergarten classes, and thus more of them.

District officials say they are anticipating record-breaking enrollment of nearly 318,000 students next year, which is up about 3,300 from this school year.
