After three extra weeks of summer vacation, teachers and students will report Monday to the new Jesse Scott Elementary School in North Las Vegas.Of the district’s six new and four replacement campuses, only Scott wasn’t finished by the time school started Aug. 25. Construction of the school stayed on schedule, but road improvements and a drainage channel took longer than expected.Part of the problem stemmed from a decision by Pardee Homes to delay construction on an adjacent lot. The district and the city of North Las Vegas had expected the homebuilder to shoulder responsibility for some of the off-site improvements.When Pardee pulled out, the work — and its $1.5 million price tag — fell to the district.The school will operate on a modified year-round calendar to make up the missed school days.
