SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The following described public lands in Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada have been examined and found suitable for lease and subsequent conveyance under the provisions of the R&PP Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 869 et seq.) On parcel one, identified as serial number N-75716, CCSD proposes to use 15 acres of land for an elementary school. The elementary school structure will be similar to the design of Marshall Darnell Elementary School. The building consists of 62,500 square feet and contains twenty-nine classrooms, one library, a multipurpose room, and a teachers' lounge. The structure will feature tilt-up concrete slabs with a refrigerated air-conditioned system and a heating system. The school will accommodate an estimated enrollment of 660 students. This area is currently serviced by Aggie Roberts Elementary school which is on a year-round schedule.
