During a series of town hall meetings set to begin tonight, the Clark County School District will ask the public to decide which of its programs and services should go if Gov. Kenny Guinn's tax increase proposals fail. The district faces up to $156 million in cuts if Nevada's education funding remains unchanged. About 55 items are candidates for the chopping block in the areas of student activities, school environment and student instruction. Some of the proposed cuts or reductions are:

High school athletics, $6.3 million
