About 1,000 teachers in Clark County, Nev., could lose their jobs this school year if the district and the teachers union fail to resolve a contract dispute that is keeping the district from balancing its budget. The district has said it will enact a contingency plan -- including the midyear job cuts -- if the union does not agree to concessions including a two-year freeze on pay increases for additional education and experience. Meanwhile, the union has declared an impasse and the issue has been moved to arbitration.
