(Las Vegas, NV) — Dwight Jones is marking his last day as superintendent of Clark County Schools.

The outgoing head of the nation’s fifth-largest school district thanked staffers for their hard work.

He says everyone from bus drivers to lunch servers are “the lifeblood” of the system, and are asked “to do more with less.”

Jones has indicated he is stepping down to take care of his ailing mother.

Pat Skorkowsky, a 25-year district veteran, will lead the CCSD as interim superintendent until a national search yields a permanent replacement.

The selection process is expected to take 7 to 9 months.
