CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada lawmakers have approved a measure that seeks to eventually break up the Clark County School District.

The Senate gave final approval to AB394 Monday with just minutes left in the legislative session.

The measure would charge an interim committee with studying how to break up the nation’s fifth largest school district into five evenly divided school precincts before the 2018-19 school year.

The interim committee would be made up of lawmakers, legislative staff and members of the public and would be required to hold numerous public meetings to present the study before officially taking effect in June 2018.

It would also give smaller school districts an option to combine and share resources.

Republican Assemblyman David Gardner said breaking up the district would give parents more access to school administration.
