An unsettled contract between the teachers' union and Nevada's Clark County School District could lead to pink slips for teachers, Dwight Jones, district superintendent, said Monday. The district is asking teachers to forgo pay raises already in place to help balance the 2011-12 budget, which is facing a $39 million shortfall. Officials say the shortfall could lead to the loss of about 1,000 teacher and staff jobs.
