On Thursday of the Faculty Institute, Brian Knudsen, Community Resources Manager for the City of Las Vegas, will be meeting with the group to provide the ‘big picture’ vantage point of the myriad of issues affecting Las Vegas. Brian has asked that you take a look at the Downtown Achieves web site, which includes a video about Clark County School District. It is the fifth largest district in the U.S., and has a more than 50% dropout rate.

Brian also asked us to review a series of articles from Community Investments (Vol. 21, Issue 1). 

He would appreciate knowing any questions or areas of interest ahead of time, so please email him at bknudsen@LasVegasNevada.GOV. He’s also happy to have Facebook and Twitter communication.
