LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – The Clark County School District (CCSD) Board of School Trustees is in the process of searching for the next superintendent to lead the implementation of the trustees’ vision to increase student achievement.
The trustees are inviting the public to participate in this process by providing their input about the profile for the superintendent of schools position in order to choose the best person. Town hall meetings and and online survey are other ways to provide input. Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky is retiring on June 30, after 30 years with the district, including five years as superintendent.
In an effort to collect input from parents, students, employees and business community, the trustees will host a series of town hall meetings January 23-27 in various parts of the community. The meetings will be managed by Ray & Associates, the search firm hired by the district to locate prospective candidates for the position.
“The trustees are excited to hear from the community about the priorities they would like us to consider as we select our next superintendent,” said Board of School Trustees President Deanna L. Wright. “We are excited to choose a superintendent who will continue to build on the successes we have see in increasing the graduation rate, access to Magnet Schools and access to Advanced Placement classes,” Wright said.
