(Las Vegas, NV) - On August 27, 2019, the Education Support Employees Association (ESEA) met with the Clark County School District (CCSD) to continue negotiations on a final agreement.

"Yesterday afternoon, we made great headway in finalizing an agreement that would be the largest win for Education Support Professionals in quite some time," said Virginia M. Mills, President of ESEA. "The District listened and addressed our concerns on a wide variety of economic issues; we thank our members for their involvement as well as the support we received from the District as we work towards finalizing an agreement for our members."

The District's offer includes sizable salary increases, steps for eligible members, and increases in District support for health insurance. ESEA is seeking additional economic components. "Our members provide a wide range of vital services for our public school students each and every day, and the District's offer serves as recognition of the important role we hold in the district," said Jan Giles, Vice President of ESEA.

The next meeting between ESEA and CCSD will take place on September 3, 2019. ESEA and CCSD have agreed to meet to follow up with non-monetary language at a later date.
