During the campaign Governor Steve Sisolak said he would donate his salary to Nevada schools and today his office announced he plans to do just that. Sisolak said he’ll cut a check every 3 months to the state education gift fund. The money will go to schools that have a high percentage of students in poverty. Title 1 schools. Fox5’s Abby Tedros is live in the newsroom to tell us how much the schools will get. The plan is that each Title 1 school will get a one-time donation of a thousand dollars over the course of Sisolak’s 4 year term. A spokesperson with the Governor’s office told me he wrote his first paycheck today and it was for about $24,000. That check will likely reach about 24 schools. They money is supposed to help with essential classroom supplies that teachers usually pay for. In total we have 416 title 1 schools in the state. I’m told the state board of education will decide how that money is distributed. I talked with the Vice President of the board. He says while the money won’t solve the state’s education budget problems, Sisolak’s gesture shows he’s committed.
