Qualifications Of Top School Official Questioned

A Clark County School Board member is questioning the qualifications of Superintendent Dwight Jones’ choice for deputy superintendent of instruction.

Trustee Linda Young told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that while she’s not opposed to Pedro Martinez’s selection, she’s concerned he might not be qualified under state law.

Martinez, deputy superintendent of the Washoe County School District and former chief financial officer for Chicago Public Schools, has never been a teacher or school principal.

Under the Nevada Administrative Code, school district supervisors of instruction are required to have a teaching certificate, three years of teaching experience and a master’s degree with advanced classes in education.

State Superintendent Keith Rheault says unlicensed personnel can take management positions as long as they’re not signing the professional evaluations of teachers and school administrators.

    It is a state law. Why can’t the people that are supposed to be in charge of our schools no know that? OK, Mr. Jones is new to the job, but his staff (of which there are plenty) should have caught this blunder. Just withdraw the Mr. Martinez’ name and move on. Actually, Mr. Martinez should never have gotten the job in Washoe county either, but don’t compound the error now.
