East faced state takeover

The Las Vegas City Schools District was on the verge of being taken over by the state in May due to major problems in its special education program and its repeated failure to take steps to fix those issues.

The state Public Education Department said the deficiencies have been ongoing for years, characterizing the district’s  failure to comply with laws, rules and regulations as “substantial and pervasive.”
