WLV Head Start makes adjustments due to pandemic

West Las Vegas Schools will soon hire two new “co-teachers” for its federally-funded school readiness program Head Start. The Board of Education unanimously approved the hirings during its regular meeting last Thursday.

Head Start program managers are also working to train current teachers on the use of Google Meet, a teleconferencing program that will be used by teachers and students attending school remotely during the coronavirus pandemic.

John Bustos, the Head Start program director, told the board that laptops have already been provided to Head Start teachers, and once the Google Meet training has concluded, teachers will begin using Google Classroom, a web-based service designed for schools that is already in use widely across the district.
