HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada elementary is trying to save a teacher position through a unique fundraiser — selling chicken.

KVVU-TV reports parents at Lamping Elementary in Henderson, Nevada, held a fundraiser Wednesday at a Chick-Fil-A in Las Vegas with the hopes of funding at least one teacher job.

Some Clark County schools are facing serious challenges due to teacher shortages to budget cuts.

Lamping Elementary Principal Robert Solomon says the school had to cut three positions due to lack of enrollment or decrease in enrollment. He says the school saw an additional $83,000 budget cut.

Parent Lori Biunno says parents want to keep classroom sizes small.

Proceeds from the Las Vegas Chick-Fil-A sales go to the school.
