CCSD budget cuts prompts closure of Burk Horizon High School

LAS VEGAS - A school that offers a non-traditional route to graduation will close its doors for good next month.  The Clark County School District said Burk Horizon High School will close on Oct. 13.

CCSD's $60 million budget shortfall which caused budget cuts in the district led to the decision.

Burk Horizon High School provides a unique academic setting for students who desire a non-traditional program, including those who have already dropped out and are under 21 years of age. 

The Burk Sunset High School evening program remains open. The decision to close the day program will affect 89 students who are enrolled in classes at the school.  However, the school and CCSD will give students three options.

  • Take evening classes at Burk Sunset 
  • Take comprehensive High School courses.
  • Take classes online at Nevada Learning Academy 

If they'd like, students are allowed to participate in all three options.
