Las Vegas CBS KXNT- If you want to talk, the Clark County School District is listening. The district is hosting a series of town hall meetings over the next month, in locations all over the valley.

School Board member Lorraine Alderman told KXNT they’re deciding whether continue on the course set by former superintendent Dwight Jones, who left the district last month, or to go a different direction. After taking public input at the town hall events, the board will discuss the information at its regular meeting on May 20.

They’re also taking public comment on the qualifications they should seek in a permanent successor to Jones.

“Do we want someone with years of experience running a major school district, do they need to have a doctorate, do we want someone who’s all about collaboration?” Alderman said. “What are the priorities that the community feels are important.

The district has placed a long-time district employee and Jones deputy, Pat Skorkowski, in the position on an interim basis.

The first meeting is at Sierra Vista High School on Tuesday. There’s a complete list on the Clark County School District website.
