LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- It's the end of the school year and the start of summer break for hundreds of thousands of Clark County students.
But this may be the last day some kids see their teachers with layoffs looming.
There was quite a range of emotions in our local schools, from laughter to jumping for joy. And then there were tears as students realized they may not see their teachers next year.
The School District is expected to hand out more than 1,000 pink slips next week.
At Centennial High School, many students were really worried about their teachers, staying behind to talk.
At Gibson Middle School, students ran from their classrooms after their last round of finals as the buses rolled out.
Many teachers say while their students are planning the next three months of summer break, they'll be mentally preparing for the coming year, where they are anticipating more students in their classes.
These layoffs come after an arbitrator decided raises were appropriate for teachers instead of pay freezes.
The School District says in order to honor those raises they will have to lay off teachers. The exact number of layoffs will be determined after resignations are factored in.
