(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Superintendent Dwight Jones says despite challenges, the nation’s fifth-largest school district is heading in the right direction.

Jones released his second-year goals to the Clark County School Board last night, building on such reforms as creating “performance zones” for low-scoring schools, measuring proficiency based on student growth, and creating a five-star system for ranking the county’s schools.

Jones hopes to expand technology and private-public partnerships in his second year as superintendent.  He says the district is “on the right course.”
